Quick courgette and feta fritters, perfect for as a starter or as part of a summer lunch.


  • 4 medium courgettes
  • 2 handfuls of mint, finely chopped
  • 1 pack of feta roughly crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp chipolte chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • sweet chilli sauce to serve


  • STEP 1
    Wash and grate the courgettes and place them into a bowl with 2 small handfuls of sea salt. Cover with a clean tea towel and leave to salt for 30 mins.
  • STEP 2
    Meanwhile crumble the feta into a bowl with the chilli, mint and oregano and a little salt and pepper.
  • STEP 3
    After 30 mins, place the courgette into the tea towel and squeeze over a sink to drain the water. Try squeeze out as much as you can as this will stop the fritters going too soggy.
  • STEP 4
    Add the courgette to the feta mixture, check the seasoning, then add the flour and egg and mix.
  • STEP 5
    Heat a frying pan with a little oil on a medium heat. Shape the fritters into balls and flatten them with your palm.
  • STEP 6
    Fry the fritters in batches, about 7-10 mins each side, allowing each side to be golden brown and crisp before turning.
  • STEP 7
    Serve straight away with the sweet chilli sauce on the side.
