This is one of my favourite dishes in the warmer months. When I was a child we used to have this for lunch before heading to the beach. My childhood memories are coloured by the bright blues and greens of the Croatian summer – the intense turquoise of the Adriatic Sea and the jewel green of the pine trees and our vegetable garden. Every time I eat zucchini fritters my mind is filled with the memory of these colours and the joys of summer.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3-4 zucchinis
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 egg
1 handful dried braedcrumbs
50 grams plain flour
vegetable oil, for shallow frying
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Grate the zucchini, season it with salt and put it in a colander set over a shallow plate or bowl. Place a plate on top of the grated zucchini and then something heavy on top of the plate to press the water out of the mixture.
  2. Leave the zucchini in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, then remove and squeeze out any excess liquid with clean hands.
  3. Transfer the zucchini to a mixing bowl. Add the onion, egg, breadcrumbs and flour and mix well to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Shape the mixture into small patties with your hands. They can be palm-sized – or whatever size you like.
  5. Heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat and cook the patties until they are golden brown. Drain on paper towel then serve hot.
