Bacon corn fritters with avocado salsa

Corn fritters are a summer essential. Ours are extra delicious with bacon and served with a chunky avocado salsa. These are easy to pack up for a picnic at the beach. If you’re bacon obsessed like we are, then feel free to fry up some extra rashers to serve on the side.

Bacon corn fritters

Avocado salsa

  • 2 NZ Avocados scooped & diced
  • 3 nectarines or other stone fruit stone removed & diced
  • ¼ red onion finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1 chilli finely chopped (optional)
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • ½ cup Superb Herb coriander roughly chopped
  • salt to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the grill to high (230°C). Lay bacon rashers on a lined baking tray and grill for 5 minutes, turning halfway, until cooked and crispy. Set half aside (to serve with corn fritters) and finely chop the other half.
  • In a large bowl mix all avocado salsa ingredients together. Season to taste, then set aside.
  • For bacon corn fritters: add eggs and half the corn to a blender and blend until smooth (or add to a bowl and use a stick blender). Pour into a large bowl and fold in flour, remaining corn, chopped cooked bacon, coriander and spring onion. Liberally season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a generous drizzle of oil in a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add ladles of fritter batter, smoothing out each amount to a flat fritter shape. Fry each fritter for 3 minutes each side, until browned and cooked through. Work in batches, adding oil when necessary.
  • Serve fritters with avocado salsa and extra bacon. Yum!

Notes

- For gluten free diets simply swap the flour for gluten free self raising flour.
- The avocado salsa is also delicious on tacos, or served with fish and chicken.
