These fritters are absolutely delicious. They are crispy, crunchy and totally moreish. They are excellent appetisers for informal dinner parties or for general snacking.
If the courgettes are a little wet, squeeze and pat dry with kitchen towels.
I adapted a bit. First, I put the shredded and diced zucchini into a bowl and sprinkled the salt on top, left it 5 minutes and then squeezed out the liquid--this prevented the watery problem. Next I substituted corn meal muffin mix for the white flour. Results were thoroughly enjoyed by my husband and my 90 year old Mom who lives with us. - 23 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made these last night for friends, and they were delicious! To get rid of some of the water, I put the shredded zucchini on some paper towels before adding them to the egg mixture. They were still a bit soggy, especially after sitting out for awhile. Popping them in the oven and baking them for a few minutes might give them a nice crunch. I might add some shredded carrots to the batter next time to give them some more color too. - 30 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I loved these! This recipe seemed simpler than other recipes and I had everything on hand. I grated zucchini for zucchini bread. This was the perfect recipe for the extra grated zucchini! One addition I made was to add a green onion stalk to the basil before chopping. - 21 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
