Description

The incredible edible zucchini is in season. These fritters are a great way to prepare them. They have a great crispy edge with a softer center. The mint gives them a refreshing touch in contrast with the feta. Even if you are not a feta fan, I encourage you to try it in this dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Shredded Zucchini (About 2 Medium Zucchinis)
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • ½ whole Small Onion, Finely Chopped
  • ½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 4 Tablespoons Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Mint, Chopped
  • ¼ cups Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • 1 dash Kosher Salt
  • 1 dash Ground Black Pepper

Preparation

Place grated zucchini in a tea towel and squeeze to remove the liquid; discard liquid.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk egg. Add zucchini, garlic, onion, flour, panko, mint and feta cheese. Mix until well combined. Season with a dash of salt and pepper.

Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan. Scoop 2 tablespoons of batter, flatten slightly and drop into the hot oil. Cook on each side for about 4-5 minutes, until browned. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.

Serve immediately with a tzatziki sauce.

These were delicious! The sweetness of the zucchini and onion combined with the saltiness of the feta and cool mint made for a satisfying summer evening supper. I didn’t have the energy for tzatziki, but a dollop of sour cream and a few sprigs of mint were the perfect garnish.
