SHREDDING ZUCCHINI: For the batter first shred zucchini and place them in a colander over a bowl, season with salt and leave for 10 minutes. Squeeze the excess moisture out of the zucchini by grabbing a handful of it and squeezing it.
MAKING THE BATTER: In one bowl, whisk eggs, milk, ricotta then gradually add flour mixed with baking powder. Stir in the oat flakes, oregano and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add shredded zucchini and fried panceta and combine everything.
FRYING THE FRITTERS: For frying, place 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a non-stick frying pan and once heated scoop tablespoons of batter for each fritter, flattening with a spatula. Fry for about 2 minutes on each side until golden. Transfer fritters to the serving plate.
