Zucchini and Mussel Fritters

Zucchini and Mussel Fritters


4 people made this

These are delicious served with tomato salsa, a tossed salad and wedges for an easy summer meal. A good way to use up that abundance of zucchini we seem to get every year. Using both yellow and green zucchini gives the fritter eye appeal . You can use fresh mussels if you have them but it will take longer to prepare as you will need to steam them open. If you use soy milk it can be a dairy free meal.
