These are wonderful little tid-bits! Great without the sauce, but the sauce definitely adds something extra. I like the sauce with other things too....chicken fingers, fried shrimp, grilled chicken....try it out on whatever you think might suit you!

Breezermom congratulations on this incredible recipe. I have placed this treat in my best of 2011 cookbook. What can I say about these fritters, they are awesome. Quick and easy to make, crisp and packed full of flavor, the texture was excellent. Simply a tremendous recipe. I absolutely loved the dipping sauce and will be using it for all kinds of future treats. It is the bomb and the best part was that it was so easy using ingredients that I always have on hand. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, which we will enjoy again and again.
