COURGETTE FRITTERS

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.
