These easy fritters provide summery goodness in every bite, with the crisp, sweet pop of fresh corn kernels and the mild meatiness of zucchini. They’re great as either an everyday side dish or appetizer for a casual gathering. Fresh corn definitely offers the best flavour and texture, but in a pinch you can use canned. As you air-fry subsequent batches of fritters, you can keep the cooked ones warm in a 200°F oven; place on a wire rack in a sheet pan so they don’t get soggy on the bottom.
