Gluten Free. Dairy Free Version. Soy Free Version. Delicious.
This simple recipe highlights the flavors and crunch of fresh raw corn from the cob and gives you a high dose of anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fats from the wild caught salmon, all at the same time. The fritters are mostly fresh corn with only a small amount of organic corn meal and brown rice or quinoa flour added. This makes them pretty low in carbs and high on the crunch and freshness scale.
These beauties also come together in around 30 minutes and make a great light meal paired with fresh greens or even roasted asparagus. This is hands down one of my husbands' favorite recipes and I thought is was about time that I share it with you as well. Check it out...
