  1. Don’t be tempted to skip the steps to remove the moisture from the courgette (steps 1 & 2). You’ll end up with a soggy watery mixture – which just ain’t nice! 
  2. To freeze portion the uncooked mixture into freezer bags. Defrost in the fridge for 4-6 hours before cooking then cook as per the directions above. 
  3. This recipe makes around 4 fritters, which is 2 portions.
