DIRECTIONS

  • Put the grated zucchini in a strainer over a bowl and sprinkle with plenty of salt. Let the zucchini drain for about an hour, then rinse thoroughly. Pat dry on paper towels.
  • Put the flour into a bowl, with a small well in the center. Add egg yolk and oil, mixed together.
  • Measure 5 tbspn. water and add a little to the bowl.
  • Whisk the egg yolk and oil together, gradually incorporating the flour and water, which should make a smooth batter. Add more or less flour and water, if necessary.
  • Season the batter as desired and allow to sit for 30 minutes (this is important).
  • Stir the zucchini into the batter.
  • Whisk the egg white until stiff, and then fold into the batter.
  • Heat 1/2 inch of cooking oil in a frying pan. Add spoonfuls of batter and fry until golden, turning with tongs as necessary.
  • Drain fritters on paper towels and serve.
