Air Fryer Corn and Jalapeno Fritters turned out even better than I imagined!
When fresh summer corn is in season I like to use it as many ways as possible.
Don’t get me wrong, just on the cob with butter and salt is a simple favorite, but getting creative with food is my passion.
So I was thrilled when these
These would be great as a snack or even as a side to with dinner.
How to Make Air Fryer Corn and Jalapeno Fritters
Start by cutting the kernels off four ears of corn on the cob.
I LOVE my corn scraper for this job!

Then dice two jalapenos.
It’s up to you if you want to include a few seeds for some heat, or remove all seeds and white ribs to keep this more mild in flavor.
To the bowl with the corn and diced jalapenos add in flour, cornmeal, Old Bay seasoning, kosher salt, pepper, and an egg.
Stir until evenly mixed and let this sit for a few minutes.
It makes it a little easier to roll the fritters.
While this rests you could make the dipping sauce.
In a bowl whisk together mayo, garlic, Old Bay, and lemon juice.
This dipping sauce pairs perfectly with the fritters 🙂
Roll the corn mixture into bite size pieces, just about the size of a hushpuppy.
This batter is very delicate and falls apart easily, so I recommend rolling it with your hand and placing it right into the air fryer basket.
I wanted the corn to be the star of the show here and not a real thick batter.
Once they cook they hold together perfectly.
Set the air fryer to 370 degrees for 12 minutes and they come out gorgeous and golden brown!
Let them cool slightly and serve Air Fryer Corn and Jalapeno Fritters with the Old Bay dipping sauce.
I love breaking them into smaller pieces, makes them more dippable 🙂
We were lucky enough to have a few leftovers.
I reheated them in the air fryer for 3 minutes and they were just as good the next day!
