  • 4 tbsp flour

  • 450g courgette grated

  • 1 tsp jerk seasoning (or chilli powder)

  • 50g fresh breadcrumbs

  • 2 tbsp butter melted

  • 1 small onion peeled and chopped

  • 1 egg beaten


  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Shape it into small cakes and shallow fry in a couple of spoons of oil until they are golden on both sides.
  3. Drain on paper towels and serve hot with some mayonnaise and/or sweet chilli sauce.

Handy Hint

Jerk seasoning is usually used to spice up chicken or meat but it is really versatile and tasty and livens up these courgette fritters nicely.

    Delicious but need to make them quite thin for them to cook through

    You could add some grated parmesan or some crumbled feta to this recipe to bulk it out.
