We usually grill our zucchini but lately we have been eating so much zucchini and yellow squash that I decided to change things up a bit. I have been seeing a lot of recipes online for zucchini fritters so I thought, why not! I google a few recipes, they were all similar, so I figured I would wing it and just throw stuff in a bowl, then fry them.
I shredded the zucchini, tossed it with a little salt and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then I wrung out as much liquid as possible, using a kitchen towel. I put that in the bowl with a generous helping of shredded locatelli cheese, minced garlic, pepper, and one egg. The batter was a little too loose so I added some dry bread crumbs to the mix.
I fried them in a little olive oil and we had them with grilled pork tenderloin, baked beans, and coleslaw.
They weren’t bad but they were a bit boring. I think next time I am going to saute the garlic with some onion, add a pinch of salt, and top them with tomato sauce. Live and learn! It is always worth trying something new.
Have you tried anything new this week?
