Zucchini Fritters (Mücver)

We have a new roommate living with us who is from Turkey. I always feel inspired to cook when we have new people in the house! So our new friend has been here over a month and is missing home and Turkish food. Knowing what it is like to be away from home and missing comfort food (I lived in Thailand for a year) I have been trying my best to make some food that he will enjoy. Here is a recipe that we made last week that was awesome! (reminds me of my dad’s Zucchini pancakes)

5-6 small firm zucchinis, grated (to make 4 cups)
3 medium eggs
1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
1/3 cup chopped fresh mint
4 green onions, finely chopped
1 1/2 cup feta grated or finely chopped
1 tbsp paprika
salt
black pepper
1 1/2 cups flour
oil for frying

Put grated zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let drain for 10 minutes then squeeze out liquid and place in a bowl. Mix all the ingredients except for the flour and oil. Add flour in slowly and mix well. Heat oil in a frying pan on medium/ high. Once oil is hot, drop scoops of mixture in small batches. Fry them on each side until golden brown, 4-5 minutes. Set on paper towel to drain. Serve with plain yogurt or Tzatziki.
