Ingredients

2 zucchini, grated
1 yellow banana pepper,finely chopped
½ red onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
2 cloves Marinated Garlic, crushed
1 large red chilli, finely chopped
180 g Marinated Feta
1 teaspoon salt
pinch of cracked pepper
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ cup plain flour
extra-virgin olive oil, for frying

1. Place the grated zucchini in a clean tea towel and press to remove all the excess juice.

2. Transfer to a bowl and add the banana pepper, onion, mint, dill, parsley, garlic and chilli.

3. Chop the feta into small pieces and add to the mix. Season with salt and pepper, add the egg and flour and give the mixture a good stir.

4. Place a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, drizzle with olive oil and add 2 heaped tablespoons of the mixture for each fritter. Fry on each side for 3–4 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
