Recipe Info

  • Prep Time : 15m
  • Cook Time : 5m
  • Ready In : 20m


  • 600g baby marrow, grated
  • 90g plain our
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 spring onions, sliced
  • vegetable oil
  • feta cheese, for serving
  • fresh coriander, for serving
  • wholegrain mustard, for serving


Step 1

Place the grated baby marrow in a colander set over a bowl and sprinkle lightly with salt. Allow to stand for 10 minutes. Using your hands, squeeze out as much liquid from the baby marrow as possible. Transfer to a large bowl.

Step 2

Add the our, eggs, spring onions, 1⁄4 teaspoon salt and 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper to the bowl, stirring until the mixture is combined. Line a plate with paper towels.

Step 3

Liberally coat the bottom of a large frying pan with vegetable oil and place it over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, scoop 3-tablespoon mounds of the baby marrow mixture into the pan, pressing them lightly into rounds and spacing them at least 2 inches apart. Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes, then ip them once and cook an additional 2 minutes until golden brown and cooked throughout. Transfer the fritters to the paper towel-lined plate and immediately sprinkle them with salt. Repeat the scooping and cooking process with the remaining mixture.

Step 4

Serve the fritters topped with feta cheese, fresh coriander and wholegrain mustard.
