Serves on their own or with a dip of your choice, these fritters will become your favourite healthy snack.
Shredding zucchini is the first step of this recipe. Shred 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 5 minutes, then squeeze with your hands. If you leave liquid in zucchini, fritters will be soft and won't crisp up.
Batter is prepared by whisking an egg and adding baking powder, salt and freshly ground black pepper. In a medium bowl combine shredded zucchini, sweetcorn, 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!
