Need an appetizer to serve at your next party? This recipe for spicy corn fritters is something everyone can enjoy, not just those following a gluten-free diet.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

1 cup canned corn

2 fresh red chilies, seeded and finely chopped

1 teaspoon minced garlic (about 2 cloves)

10 kaffir lime leaves, finely chopped (found in Thai section of Asian markets)

3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup premade polenta (about 4 ounces)

1/4 cup finely sliced green beans

1/2 cup peanut oil (for frying)

  1. Put the corn, chilies, garlic, lime leaves, cilantro, eggs, polenta, and green beans into a large bowl; mix them thoroughly. Use your hands to form balls about the size of golf balls. Set them on a plate.

  2. Heat the peanut oil in a wok, skillet, or deep fryer to a high heat. You'll know the oil is hot enough when you add a small drop of water into the oil and it pops. (Be careful, though. More than a drop, and it may pop and burn you.)

  3. Turning the fritters occasionally, cook them in the oil until they're brown and crispy on the outside (about 7 minutes). Remove the fritters from the wok, skillet, or deep fryer with a slotted spoon, and let them drain on paper towels.
