Here's what I call a fun fun meal.
Lovely flavors with crab meat and corn coming together and then some with herbs and spices.
The result is deliciously scrumptious. You don't want to omit the buttermilk and substitute with milk and what not because acidic content is key to the fluffiness of these fritters - the buttermilk acts as a catalyst with the baking soda.
Chemistry rocks, peeps!
I tend to make these and variations of the same, on weeknights when I need a quick dinner fix and all I need is a simple salad to pair.
Once you've got the batter together, you'll need to fry these in batches on the pan. Best served hot, but warm works just as well. Just be sure to begin making these about 30 minutes ahead of dinner time.

Make Ahead tips: These fritters are best eaten immediately off the hot stove. They do fine in for lunch box meals the next day & though they don't look half as fluffy, taste just fine.
