I have just seen the wonderful Japanese movie Still Walking (Aruitemo, aruitemo). Apart from being a great movie it is also full of Japanese cooking and dishes. One dish they make is some kind of corn fritters: corn on the cob is peeled and then seems to be made into little patties and deep fried. Possibly there is shrimp in them as well, since we see the grandmother peeling and preparing shrimps at the same time. I wonder if anybody has more information on how to make these little "fritters", they seemed to be delicious? So did the rest of the food in this movie, which I thoroughly recommend.

Re: Corn fritters?

It sounds rather like kakiage made with shrimp and corn. Kakiage is a type of tempura, that is easier to make then regular tempura. You can use the tempura batter recipe here; put the cut corn and some chopped up shrimp (or tiny shrimp) into the batter, then drop spoonfuls of it in hot oil to fry.
