    What to do

  • 1. To make the fritter batter, mix the eggs and egg yolks in a large bowl with sea salt and flour until combined and smooth. Fold in the corn, feta, fennel, spring onion, dill, lemon zest and juice and pepper.

  • 2. To make the smashed avocado, spoon the avocado flesh onto a small plate. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, the coriander and lemon juice and mash roughly with fork. Set aside for later.

  • 3. Turn your oven grill to maximum temperature.

  • 4. To make the coffee and maple bacon combine the instant coffee with the boiling water and leave for a few minutes to allow the coffee to dissolve, then add the maple syrup. Place the bacon on a foil covered baking tray and brush each side with the coffee and maple glaze. Grill the bacon on both sides until crispy.

  • 5. Heat a little olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium high heat and spoon in four equal portions of the fritter batter. Shape into small rounds with the back of a spoon and cook for 3 minutes until golden brown on the underside. Flip and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

  • 6. Serve 2-3 corn fritters per person with a large spoonful of the smashed avocado on top and a side of the coffee maple bacon.
