Zucchini and Halloumi Fritters

"Zucchini fritters are always delicious. These ones are all the tastier for the inclusion of dill, haloumi and lemon. This recipe makes 45 appetisers, and is from the Australian publication 'finger food' by Murdoch Books. I am posting it here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. If you want to serve these as a side dish rather than as an appetiser, or as one dish in a vegetarian meal, simply make them larger, and remember to adjust the cooking time."

45 fritters




  • Coarsely grate the zucchini and squeeze out as much liquid as possible in your hands.
  • Combine the zucchini with the spring onion, haloumi, flour, eggs and dill, and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based, preferably non-stick pan, form fritters from the mixture (by using heaped teaspoons full of the mixture for each fritter), and cook in batches for 2 minutes each side, or until golden and firm; and drain on paper kitchen towels.
  • Cut each slice of lemon into quarters or eighths, depending on the size of the lemons, so that one piece can be placed as a triangle on top of each fritter.
  • Top each fritter with 1/2 a teaspoon of yoghurt, a triangular-shaped piece of lemon and a small sprig of dill.

  3. These fritters worked a treat. They stayed in shape and tasted great. I particularly like the fact you don't need to salt the zucchini, making it a quick recipe that requires very little planning. Impulse food, great!

July 2008 update: VERY happy to be back on Zaar after about a two year absence due to having had no internet connection at home, and having been too unwell for a time so that getting re-connected wasn't even a priority! <br> <br>And really looking forward to getting back into the Zaar world and connecting again with the many wonderful people I knew before, and new people, of course!
