Zucchini Hush Puppies

Sometimes I wonder, “Why”.  Sometimes I wonder, “How”.  I know not to wonder, “When”, for I would like that to be a surprise.  How and Why will show themselves to me in their own time and then, it will be clear to see, When.


3 zucchini – peeled and grated
½ small red onion – chopped fine
¼ cup fresh Italian parsley – chopped
1 ½ cups corn meal
1 ½ cups flour
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. baking powder
½ cup milk
2 eggs - beaten
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. paprika
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
Vegetable oil for frying

In a large bowl combine the grated zucchini, chopped onion, flour, corn meal, baking soda, baking powder, milk, eggs, and seasonings.

Mix together and let sit for about 10 – 12 minutes. 

Heat a large cast iron frying pan with about ½ inch of vegetable oil.

Using a teaspoon, carefully spoon the batter into the hot oil.  Do not overcrowd the pan.  When the fritter is golden on one side, carefully turn over and finish cooking on the other side.

Lay the fritters on a plate lined with paper towel to.

For the Dipping Sauce:

¼ cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
Pinch of salt
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Juice of ¼ lemon

Combine all of the ingredients for the dipping sauce in a small bowl and mix.

Enjoy with Love,
