How to make baked zucchini corn fritters

How to grate zucchini

Grating zucchini is the first step of this recipe. Grate zucchini using a large holes on box grater rather than the small one - it will give better texture to the fritters.

To excess the liquid from the zucchini, sprinkle them with some salt and leave for 10-15 minutes, then squeeze with your hands. If you leave liquid in zucchini, fritters will be soft and won't crisp up.



Making the batter & Frying fritters

Batter is prepared by whisking an egg and adding baking powder, salt and freshly ground black pepper. In a medium bowl combine grated zucchini, sweetcorn, shredded mozzarella, chopped parsley and breadcrumbs. Now pour egg mixture over zucchini to make stiff batter.

Using a spoon, scoop batter onto baking sheet lined with baking paper and press slightly to form a fritter. Fritters should be baked in the oven until golden and crispy. Once baked, remove them from the sheet and place on serving plate. Serve while still warm!
