zucchini fritters


1 zucchini cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 large egg
about 1/3 cup of flour (more if you have a big zucchini!)
parsley, garlic
salt & pepper
olive oil


Lightly sprinkle the cut zucchini slices with salt.
Leave them for 5-7 minutes so that they become well salted and slightly pickled.
In the mean time, combine the flour, parsley, garlic and pepper on a shallow plate.
Whisk one egg into another shallow bowl and add a pinch of salt.
Coat the zucchini slices with flour on both sides and set aside.
Heat about 2 T of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat.
Dip each floured zucchini piece into the egg, coat it fully and then put it in the frying pan.
When both sides are nicely browned they are ready to be taken off the heat.
