Zucchini ball Ingredients:
Heat half of the olive oil in a heavy skillet. Scoop out the mixture with a tablespoon and shape into round, flat fritters. If the mixture is too wet to shape, add a little flour. Cook the fritters over medium heat, 5 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Remove the fritters from the pan and place on paper towels to absorb the oil.
Squeeze a little lemon on top and serve hot. Enjoy!
