How to make zucchini pancakes

  1. First, wash the courgettes under running water, then remove the ends. Grate them with a grater with large holes and if they turn out to be too watery squeeze them quickly with your hands.
  2. Transfer them to a bowl and add the eggs , flour and grated cheese . You will have to obtain a sort of batter, similar to that of crepes. Finally, season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Heat half a centimeter of oil in a large frying pan. Then pour the batter , helping you with a ladle and forming small mounds which will naturally tend to expand.
  4. Fry the pancakes for a couple of minutes then, when the first bubbles appear on the surface, using a kitchen spatula, turn them over and continue cooking on the other side for two minutes.
  5. Once ready, pat them dry with kitchen paper and serve piping hot . As you can see, the recipe for zucchini fritters is really simple!

Serve them with a homemade aioli sauce or in combination with a green salad to degrease the dish a bit.
