Cajun Corn Crunchies

Hunks of corn-off-the-cob dipped in a spicy mixture and fried.


Spice mixture:

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup plain Panko bread crumbs


1/3 cup flour

2 - 3 eggs

Vegetable oil for frying

4 - 5 cobs of cold, roasted corn


In a small bowl, combine cayenne, chili powder, garlic, salt and Panko.  Put flour in another small bowl, and in a third small bowl, beat eggs.   Set aside.

Cut corn off the cob lenghwise, reserving the bigger pieces (the 'crumbs' can be used in a salad or corn muffins).  Heat 1" vegetable oil in a large pot.  Carefully dip corn pieces first in flour, then eggs, then spice mixture.  Fry until golden brown.  Do this in batches because it only takes a minute or two to fry.  Drain on paper towels.  Dust with a little more salt, if desired.
