Despite the heat being on full blast this season, I made something deep fried. WORTH IT!
Lucky Peach lured me back into the poorly ventilated kitchen with promises of Corn & Crab Fritters. They turned out super light for a fried food. It uses baking powder, and I let the corn and crab and dough mush sit for a little bit while I made a quick and unauthentic remoulade. Small fried things always take extra time to make, but I keep making them!
The fritters also reheated well in the oven. Because nothing says "Great Ideas for Heat Waves" like turning on your oven every day. :|
*record stop scratch*
Can we talk about this heat? It's the hottest year on record, again. I'm not one of those types who posts those "I love Fall because sweaters, leaves and Pumpkin Spice Lattes" memes but let's get real here. You can add clothing and blankets in the winter. You can only get so naked in public before it's illegal in the summer. I don't complain about the cold, I just cook things in my dutch oven for hours on end to heat up the house and wear super cute knits. You should see my slippers from Ikea, they're practically duvets for my feet! My cat hates the heat and humidity too, and he's a lot more snuggly during the other three seasons. Gawd. I do love a good thunderstorm though. And the beach.
Ok. Rant over. Make these fritters, you won't be disappointed.
