Zucchini Fritters

Vincenzo's Plate


  • 2 Medium size mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • 2 Tablespoons
  • Medium deep fry pan
  • Spatula
  • Grater
  • Paper towels


  • 5 Eggs
  • 5 Zucchini
  • 3 Self-raising flour heaped tablespoons
  • 2 Plain flour heaped tablespoons
  • 5 tbsp Freshly grated Pecorino cheese
  • Cooking salt
  • Sprinkle of pepper
  • Olive Oil


  • To make the zucchini fritters, you should first prepare the zucchini by freshly grating them into a bowl.
  • Add a sprinkle of cooking salt to the grated zucchini and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Then, scoop out handfuls of the mixture at a time, squeezing them by pressing both hands around them until you get all of the water out, transferring them into a clean bowl.
  • Crack five eggs into a medium sized bowl and whisk them well. Then, add salt and pepper, and mix again.
  • The next step for your zucchini fritters is to add both the self-raising flour and plain flour, followed by the pecorino cheese.
  • Once this is mixed through well, combine it in the same bowl as the zucchini and mix.
  • Then heat up olive oil in a medium pan. Once it is ready, turn it down slightly so the oil doesn't burn the fritters.
  • Using a tablespoon, scoop out a heap of the mixture gently drop it into the pan with oil.
  • Make sure you cook each side of the zucchini fritters for just over a minute or until golden brown.
  • Remove each zucchini fritters once cooked and transfer it to a plate with paper towels on top to soak any excess oil.
