Slightly obsessed with courgettes at the moment. Cooked any which way how and with a million different sauces. I cant get enough and am slightly worried I may turn into a courgette soon. Would that be such a bad thing? Then I could eat myself! Ok enough obsessing over courgettes. Here is the recipe for a delicious stack of fritters with crunchy panko breadcrumbs (another ingredient I somehow manage to sneak into every meal) and a fiery sriracha mayo dipping sauce. Happy courgette consumption!
2 cups grated courgette (about 2 courgettes)
1 clove crushed garlic
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup plain flour
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lightly oil a baking sheet.
After grating the courgette used paper towels to squeeze out the excess liquid.
In a medium bowl mix the grated courgette, garlic, onion, flour, breadcrumbs, egg, paprika, salt and pepper until thoroughly combined.
Form the courgette mixture into six fritters using a ¼ cup of the mixture to form 2 ½ to 3 inch diameter fritters. Place fritters on the prepared baking sheet and bake on one side for 18-20 minutes. Flip the fritters and bake for another 15 minutes.
Add sriracha hot sauce to mayonnaise (equal quantities) and mix together.
