Zucchini Fritters with Smoked Salmon and Chive Cream Cheese
2 zucchini, grated
2 spring onions, finely sliced
½ cup self-raising flour
¼ cup grated parmesan
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
Salt flakes & freshly ground black pepper
125g spreadable cream cheese
2 tsp chives, finely chopped
½ tsp lemon rind, finely grated
100g Ocean Blue Smoked Salmon Cracked Pepper Slices
Combine zucchini, spring onions, flour, cheese, egg, and seasonings in a large mixing bowl. Mix until well combined.
Heat oil in a frying pan and cook ¼ cup measures of mixture for 3-4 minutes each side, or until golden and cooked through. Set aside on paper towel whilst cooking the remaining mixture.
Combine cream cheese with chives, lemon, and seasonings. Mix well. Set aside until required.
Serve fritters dolloped with herbed cream and smoked salmon slices. Garnish with additional herbs if desired.
Note: you can also make smaller fritters to use as canapes, simply spread a small amount of herbed cream cheese on top and finish with some smoked salmon slices. Add some additional herbs such as dill, or even some chopped capers to the cream cheese mixture.
