DIRECTIONS

  • Tomatoes& Bacon.
  • Start with the tomatoes: Preheat the oven to 180°C Cut each tomato in half lengthwise. Place on a roasting tray, cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper (and tiny pinch of dried herbs if you fancy). Roast for 20-30 minutes. For the final 10 mins - move the tomatoes to bottom rack and turn the grill on. Lay out your rashers of bacon (suggest 2 per person) onto a grilling rack. Grill until crisp and crunchy turning regularly. Watch carefully to ensure bacon doesnt burn. Ideally bacon should be stiff and can practically be snapped like a biscuit. Remove both bacon and tomatoes and put aside. Turn oven down to 120°C (for keeping Corn fritters warm whilst cooking).
  • Corn Fritters.
  • Place half of the corn kernels and the onion, eggs, coriander, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper in a food processor (or in a bowl with hand held whizzer) and process until combined. This is an important step! Whizzing the corn up in this way gives the binding agents a distinct corn flavour which I find lacking in other fritters which do not do this. I believe this is one of the secrets that make Bill's fritters so damn good! Place in a large bowl, add the remaining corn and stir to combine.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium to high heat. When the oil is hot, drop 2 heaped tablespoons of mixture per sweetcorn cake into the pan and cook in batches of three for 1 minute each side.
  • Drain on paper towels and keep warm in the oven while you are making the rest of the cakes. Serve with the avocado salsa.
  • Avocado salsa.
  • Place all the ingredients in a bowl and stir very gently to combine. Season well.
  • To serve.
  • Create stacks of the various elements in any combination you wish (see picture above). Place a fritter on the plate, then any combination of bacon, spinach, tomatoes and other fritters that your heart desires. Top with avocado salsa and drizzle with olive oil.
  • YUM!
