Zucchini Fritters;

  • 500gms grated zucchini (about  2 large or 3 medium sized zucchini)
  • 1/2 onion chopped finely (can use spring onions or chives instead)
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup grated parmesan (depending on how wet the mix is)
  • 2 – 3 x eggs (depending on the size)
  • 3 x cloves of garlic
  • S & P to taste (you shouldn’t need much salt as the parmesan is salty)
  • Butter or rice bran oil for frying


  • Slices of smoked salmon or a cooked piece of salmon fillet with a dollop of sour cream and a sprig of dill.


  1. Squeeze out as much water from the grated zucchini as you can. I use a clean chux cloth, or a clean teatowel works too.

2. Sprinkle the squeezed grated zucchini with salt; leave to sit for 30 minutes to release additional water and then squeeze as much water out as possible.

3. Mix Parmesan cheese, eggs, green onions, garlic, basil, and S & P in a bowl; add zucchini. Stir to combine.

4. Heat butter and olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Form golf ball-sized     zucchini patties and place in hot frying pan. Flatten with a spatula and fry until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

5. Place the slices of smoked salmon or salmon fillet on top of fritters and add a dollop of sour cream and a sprig of dill.

Also nice with a tahini & yoghurt dressing. Try this recipe here;
