Monkfish & Bacon Corn Fritters

Since the quarantine we've been buying a lot more local seafood and trying new fish recipes with our purchases. It has also given us a way of remembering our summer travels. This past week I purchased some Monkfish filets, which has tight, meaty white flesh that's often been compared to lobster tail. With that information, some local bacon, and inspired by a past birthday trip to Portland, ME; I decided to make 'Lobster & Bacon Fritters' but substituted monkfish for the lobster. These flavorful, crisp cornmeal fritters are filled with juicy monkfish, salty bacon and spring onions. Here is my recipe:
