Zucchini fritters, poached egg
Cuisine: Brucnh
Serves: 2
  • 1 green or yellow zucchini
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¼-1/2 cup self raising flour
  • ½ cup fresh sweetcorn (probably about ½ corn on the cob)
  • black pepper & salt to season
  • 2-4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • chopped chives
  1. Trim ends off zucchini and grate them either thru the large holes on the box grater or in a food processor. Sprinkle salt on the zucchini, toss and let it sit for 5- 10 minutes.
  2. Pour zucchini in a colander, gently 'wash' it to get rid of the saltiness. Squeeze out small handful of shredded zucchini to get rid of the water.
  3. In a bowl with the now drained and dry shredded zucchini, add in egg, sweetcorn and self raising flour. Use a fork to mix through till the mixture is somewhat thick. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a pan with a little oil. Spoon in zucchini fritter (about 3" wide) mixture and let it fry for 2-3 minutes. Flip over and fry another 2-4 minutes or until the fritter is golden at the edges. Remove fritters from pan and rest it on a paper towel while you prepare the poached egg.
  5. To make poached egg, bring a small pot of water to boil. Add in vinegar. Reduce the heat to a light simmer.
  6. Use a spoon to swirl the pot of water. Crack in 1 egg into the swirling water. If you want 2 eggs, add it in too(but not directly above the 1st egg) If your eggs are fresh, the egg whites would not mix together while poaching.
  7. Let it simmer for 3 minutes or lift up with a slotted spoon and check the doneness of the egg by lightly pressing on the yolks. It should be bouncy and not firm.
  8. Stack the zucchini on a plate, add poached egg on top. Sprinkle some salt and black pepper and some chopped chives.
