WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - This is some great game-day food. Chef Chris Manning shows us how to make Shrimp and Corn Fritters.

He also makes Pumpkin Seed Salsa. The pumpkin seeds give it a nice crunch.

He says the fritter batter starts out thick, but it thins out to a nice consistency after several hours in the fridge.
