- 4-6 tbsp rapeseed oil
- TO SERVE
- 3 tbsp chilli jam
- A small handful of coriander leaves

Makes approx. 10-15 fritters
1. Pull the leaves and the silks off the cob. Lay the cob on a chopping board. Carefully cut down the sides with a knife, rotating as you go, to slice off the kernels. Chuck them in a large bowl.
2. Halve, deseed and finely chop the chilli. Zest in the limes. Trim and thinly slice the spring onion. Finely chop the coriander leaves and stalks. Add them to the bowl with the sweet corn.
3. In a separate bowl, mix together the cornflour, coconut flour and baking powder. Mix in the egg and 150ml sparkling water till smooth.
4. Tip in the 50/50 crab meat and add a good pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well to combine.
5. Transfer the corn mix to the bowl with the crab batter and mix till well incorporated. If the batter is too thick, add a little more sparkling water. The batter should be thick but not dry.
6. Place a large frying pan on a medium heat for a couple of mins. When the pan is warm, pour in 2 tbsp oil. Spoon a heaped dessert spoon of the batter into the pan. Depending on the size of your pan ad 2 or 3 more spoonfuls.
7. Fry for about 3 mins then carefully flip the fritters over. Fry for a further 2-3 mins till golden brown on each side and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper. Keep warm in a low oven if required.
8. Continue till you have used all the batter, adding more oil as needed.
9. Squeeze the juice from 1 lime in to a medium bowl. Stir through the chilli jam. Cut the remaining lime into wedges.
10. Sprinkle the fritter with a little sea salt and a few coriander leaves. Serve them with the chilli jam to dunk and squeeze wedges of lime over.
