Zucchini fritters with chili lime mayo

Zucchini fritters with chili lime mayo

It's the time of year for zucchini everything! Our zucchini plants have had a particularly fruitful year and I've been looking for yummy ways to use it up. A friend suggested doing a zucchini fritter, which sounded like a brilliant idea. She has lots of brilliant ideas about food. So I set to work on coming up with my own recipe and they turned out amazing the first time. I made a chili lime mayo to serve them with, and MMM! Those flavours together are frittastic! This recipe makes 25-30 fritters so they could be served as a main course or as a party appetizer.

  • Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients

  • zucchini

Preparation

Here's how I made them:

vegetable oil for frying

3 cups grated zucchini

1 cup diced onion

2 eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 cup prepared mayo

juice of half a lime

1/2 tsp chili powder

I started by pouring the vegetable oil in my skillet so that it was half an inch deep and turned the heat to medium. Meantime, I combined the zucchini, onion, and eggs in a large bowl.

I gave the mixture a good stir to combine. It got all kinda frothy. Awesome.

Next, I combined the flour, baking powder, 1/2 tsp of chili powder, salt, and pepper in a small mixing bowl and stirred to combine. To finish the batter, I added the dry ingredients to the zucchini mixture and folded it all together.

To test my oil, I dipped a spoon into my batter then dipped the spoon into the oil. Once the oil bubbled in contact with the batter, I knew it was hot enough. I dropped my batter into the oil by the heaping tablespoon, frying about six fritters at a time. They cooked for 2-3 minutes a side. Once the centres were firm, I removed the fritters from the oil and let them drain on a dinner plate lined with paper towel.

To make the dip, I simply combined the prepared mayo, lime juice, and chili powder in a small mixing bowl and stirred it all up. This is a seriously yummy dip! I love limes. And chili powder. And mayo. So this really couldn't go wrong.
