ZUCCHINI FRITTERS (makes 5)

Ingredients
1 medium zucchini shredded (~350 grams)
40g flour
30g grated parmesan cheese
2 tbsp diced garlic
1 large egg, beaten
Pinch of salt and black pepper, to taste
2 tbsp olive oil

Method:
1) Shred zucchini. Place shredded zucchini in a colander over a bowl. Sprinkle zucchini lightly with salt and gently toss to combine (this draws water out from the zucchini). Let sit for 10 minutes. Use hands or dish towel to squeeze as much liquid from zucchini as possible
2) In large bowl, add zucchini, flour, cheese, garlic, egg, pinch of salt and pepper
3) Heat medium saucepan on medium heat. Add 2 tbsp olive oil
4) Once oil is hot, scoop 2 tablespoons of zucchini batter for each fritter into the saucepan. Flatten it with spatula and cook until underside is golden brown, ~2 minutes.
5) Flip zucchini over and cook on the other side, about 2 minutes.
6) Serve immediately
