Zucchini Fritters

zucchini frittersSimple and tasty. These make a great (occasional) alternative side dish.

You will need:

2 medium zucchini, washed (ends cut, skin on)
1 onion, chopped
1 egg
2 TBS. flour, and a little more to make a batter
2 Tsp. baking powder
dill, salt, pepper (to taste)
optional, dash of tobasco
oil for frying

Shred zucchini and leave in a colander for an hour or so to drain. Squeeze excess liquid.

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the oil. If soupy, add more flour. Mix well.

Fry these as you would a pancake (except in this case, in a little oil instead of butter), by spoonfuls; cook until lightly browned on each side. Let rest on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
