Corn fritters?

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?
