The Easiest Zucchini and Sweet Corn Fritters Recipe
This Zucchini and Sweet Corn Fritters Recipe is a super quick snack to put together, using only 5 ingredients. Have them as is, with some tomato ketchup, or dress them up with some creme fraiche, chives and salmon. Great snack for little bellies after a busy day.
Servings: 10 serves
- 1 average sized zucchini grated
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup corn kernels
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoon whole wheat flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- salt and pepper to taste
Place the grated zucchini in a sieve, pour the salt over it and allow to sit over the sink for about 5 to 10 minutes. After that time, squeeze the zucchini and push it down on the sieve to remove as much water as possible
In a large bowl, mix the drained zucchini and corn kernels with the egg until the kernels are coated
Using a sieve, slowly add in the flour and the baking powder to the corn mixture, and gently combine
Add salt and pepper to taste
Heat some cooking oil of choice (I used avocado oil) in a large saucepan over medium heat. Once oil is hot, add a tablespoon of the mixture at a time. Cook for about 3 minutes on one side, or until it's browned, flip, and cook another 3 minutes, or until it's browned. Remove and repeat for all the other corn fritters (I can usually fit about 4-5 into each batch).
