I love courgette fritters (I'm British). I let my courgette drain in a colander or even a sieve for up to an hour then just squeeze excess water out with my hands.
It's such an easy recipe and tastes delicious plus they're very filling when you're hungry. I also like to experiment with herbs and spices and this is good with chopped green or red chilli; fresh chives; mint and parsley.
Sorry, just made these. I have one large, flat pancake. Couldn't get the to become individual pancakes. Too much liquid. Drained in frig or an hour, but still too moist. Even tried some corn flour to dry to dry it out, but no luck.
I'm low-carbin' it and thought I'd try these for a different breakfast. They are deliciously savory. I put the zucchini in a thin cotton towel in the colander, salt it and then wring out the liquid. I added extra parmesan and used minced red onions. FABULOUS!! I'll be making these again.
YUM YUM!!! I was so worried these wouldn't hold because there was no way of making these into patties by hand. They were to goopy. Anyway so I just spooned it into the pan shaped it as well as a I could and hoped it would hold. They flipped beautifully! Tasted good too! Thanks!
Wonderful flavor! Can also be frozen and reheated either in a frying pan or microwave. One tip: I was trying to figure out how to make these for a crowd, but the salting, draining, etc. was just too much work. I put the shredded zucchini in my dehydrator for an hour at 125 degrees. Perfect solution!
Nommy. They tasted super good. I didn't take the time to properly drain the zucchini because I don't have any paper towels at the moment (I also excluded the onion powder because I don't have any of that either.)
If you properly drain them, they will hold together better, probably.
This reciepe was AMAZING. I would serve this to the Queen. Followed all the directions to a T. The more you squeeze out the liquid from the veg the better. I am on a low carb diet and am extremely picky about my food and this was THE BOMB. I make my own full fat Greek yogurt and a little dollop set this pancake into outerspace. I used Parmesano Reggiano and all homegrown ingredients. Good ingredients=Good food. Served this with roasted chicken and heirloom tomatoes salad with balsamic vinegar red wine vinegar and olive oil.
Delicious, followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect. I scaled it down for 1 serving too and it worked well. Thinking about adding crab to see if you could make crab cakes with this recipe. If I do I'll repost and tell how it came out.
