Recipe: Smoked salmon on corn fritters

By: Elisabeth Hasselbeck
Use this as an elegant start to a dinner party or as a new dish for your brunch recipe collection. Look for wild smoked salmon to get your dose of omega-3’s; farm-raised salmon does not contain this valuable antioxidant.
Smoked-Salmon-on-Corn-Fritters.jpg Ingredients
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh corn kernels (from about 2 large ears)
  • 1/4  cup finely ground gluten-free cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon gluten-free mild or hot chili powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large jalapeño, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 16 small slices smoked salmon
  • 1 cup crème fraîche or sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped

Directions
1  If using frozen corn, rinse it under hot running water for 1 minute to defrost it. Drain well.

2  In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, brown rice flour, tapioca starch, baking powder, salt, chili powder, and black pepper.

Make a well in the center of the cornmeal mixture, and add the corn, jalapeño, milk, butter, and egg. Starting from the center, mix the wet ingredients with a wooden spoon, slowly combining them with the cornmeal mixture until it is just combined, about 10 turns of the spoon. Set aside for 10 minutes.

4  Place a large griddle or skillet over medium-high heat. When it is hot, carefully coat it with cooking spray. Using a half filled 1/4 cup measure, pour the batter onto the hot griddle and spread it out to form fritters about 4 inches in diameter. Cook until they are golden on the bottom and bubbles are starting to appear on the surface, about 3 minutes. Then turn them over and cook until the other side is golden and the center is set, about 2 minutes more. Transfer the fritters to a plate and keep them warm while you cook the remainder (you should have 8 total).

5  Set out four plates. Place 2 fritters on each plate and top each with two slices of smoked salmon, a spoonful of crème fraîche or sour cream, and a garnish of chopped fresh dill. Serve immediately.

Serves 4.
