This recipe calls for a few simple ingredients including FRESH ZUCCHINI which are the star of the recipe. You will also need an egg, some flour, mascarpone cheese (you can skip this if you don't have), chopped fresh parsley, baking powder, salt and peeper for seasoning.
Start with shredding zucchini using large-hole box grater. Once shredded, sprinkle zucchini with some salt and leave aside for 10 minutes. Now, squeeze out as much water as possible from zucchini to avoid making fritters soggy. You can do this with your hands or using a clean cloth.
Once you have zucchini ready, whisk an egg in a large bowl, then add mascarpone and flour and whisk until you get a thick batter. We add small amount of baking powder to ensure light and fluffy texture of fritters. Now add shredded zucchini and chopped parsley and stir with a fork. In the end season with salt and pepper.
For frying fritters heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil (use 1 tablespoon for each batch) on medium non-stick frying pan. Spoon a tablespoon of batter onto frying pan for each fritter and cook for 2 - 3 minutes on each side or until the fritters are golden brown. Transfer fritters to a plate lined with kitchen paper. Fry 2 - 3 fritters in a batch, depending on your frying pan.
Make sure to check and adjust heat between batches if necessary to avoid burning the fritters. Your easy zucchini fritters are ready to serve!
