  • 2 medium size courgettes/zucchinis, washed and grated
  • 100g flour (any kind)
  • 50g mozzarella, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • S & P


  1. Grate your courgettes/zucchinis, place them in a clean tea towel and add some salt. Wait about 20 minutes then squeeze as much excess liquid as possible. This is key for super crispy fritters!
  2. Mix the grated courgette/zucchinis, flour, egg, spices and a pinch of S & P.
  3. Heat a pan on a medium heat, drizzle with oil and spoon in the mix into rounds only half full, add the grated cheese on the centre of the fritters then spoon the remaining mixture onto the rounds making sure the cheese is completely covered.
  4. Cook each side for about 5 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
  5. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, or topped with poached eggs and a side of bacon!
