To make fritters, grate zucchinis onto a piece of paper towel and squeeze out any excess moisture. Add to a large bowl with other fritter ingredients. Mix together and form ¼ cup portions into fritters. Refrigerate for 15-30 minutes or until firmed slightly. Heat oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat.
