Ingredients
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon chopped dill
  • 1 large scallion, white and green parts sliced thinly on the bias
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, roughly chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • Canola oil for frying
  • Greek yogurt
  • Picked dill, to garnish
  • Additional lemon zest, to garnish
Directions
  • Grate the zucchini on the large holes of a grater onto a clean kitchen towel. Sprinkle with the salt. Let stand while you prepare the other ingredients. Wring as much liquid out of the zucchini as possible, discarding liquid.

  • In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini, mint, dill, scallion, garlic, lemon zest, pepper and feta. Stir in the egg and flour and mix until well combined.

  • Heat enough canola oil in a pan over medium high heat to come halfway up the sides of the fritters. Form fritters, using 1/4 cup measure, and place gently into the hot oil. Fry, turning once, until the fritters are golden brown on each side, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels for a minute. Plate and garnish with a dollop of Greek yogurt, the picked dill and lemon zest.
