2 large eggs, beaten to blend
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan
½ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more
2 cups fresh corn kernels
1 scallion, thinly sliced
½ jalapeño, seeded, finely chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Sour cream and lime wedges (for serving)


Pulse eggs, flour, Parmesan, and ½ tsp. kosher salt in a food processor to combine. Add corn, scallion, and jalapeño; pulse 2–3 times.
