METHOD

Grate the courgette and squeeze in kitchen roll to remove as much water as possible. Do this a few times, the dryer the better.

Mix the fritter ingredients together in a bowl. Form into 4 patties and dust in a little extra flour.

Pan fry in oil until golden on each side - roughly 3-4 minutes on each side on a medium heat.
