Courgette (zucchini), Spring Onion and lime fritters

Courgette (zucchini), Spring Onion and lime fritters

We have been eating lots of salads and fresh fish meals this week; quick and simple dishes that are packed with flavour and goodness.  As you know one of my favourite vegetables is the courgette (zucchini), often maligned and forgotten, it’s a versatile and tasty vegetable (with a little jazzing up) that’s perfect for the season. I wanted to share these courgette, spring onion and lime fritters with you as they are so simple to make, with only a few pantry staples and taste divine. They are great on their own as a snack or as an accompaniment to any breakfast or brunch dish. Alternatively you could use them on top of a homemade beef / lamb and mint burger with some tomato salsa.
