These crispy zucchini fritters are packed with flavour!

Looking for a delicious, warm lunch or dinner treat? Here’s a great way to transform the humble zucchini into a delicious, crispy, fiendishly addictive fried pancake. We think you’ll love it!


  • 3 large zucchinis
  • 2/3 cup of plain flour.
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 large spring onion, bulb and shoots sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate soda
  • Vegetable oil
  • Sweet corn (optional, to taste)
  • Dill or fennel (optional, to taste)
  • Sour cream or yogurt (optional, to taste)
  • Salt (optional, to taste)


  • Grate the zucchinis (or shred them in a food mixer) and place them in a bowl. Add salt and set aside.
  • Beat the eggs in another large bowl.
  • Return to your shredded zucchinis. Squeeze them to remove any excess moisture, then add into the bowl with the eggs.
  • Add flour, bicarb soda, chopped spring onion, corn and herbs (if desired) and mix.
  • Fry in a pan (medium heat) until both sides are golden brown
  • Serve with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt melting over the top for an extra delicious touch!
