This is what we do with summer zucchini when we have too much. We make yummy fritters. My kids will eat anything fried and these are just that. Plus they are eating vegetables, sort of. The secret ingredient is cornmeal, but don't try adding fresh corn, not matter how yummy it sounds. I tried that once and the corn explodes in the hot oil even tucked in the fritters. Good times were had in the kitchen that day. I couldn't not make the fritters, I just had to drop and dodge. Fortunately we have a splatter guard. But corn fried in hot oil is actually really yummy.
The fritters take a little pre-prep, but they are so worth it.
