Zucchini Fritters with Sriracha Sauce #Foodie Friday

Yum
Zucchini Fritters with Sriracha Sauce- simplelivingeating.com


This was a true "refrigerator clean out" inspiration. I had left over rice, eggs, zucchini and ALWAYS, ALWAYS, a bottle of Sriracha. If I ever need a blood transfusion I'm am going to say I'm Type S for Sriracha. I wouldn't mind having this stuff pumped directly into my bloodstream; I love it so much.

If you planted zucchini in the garden and you get hit in August with a zillion zucchini this is a good recipe to have on hand. When you are tired of making zucchini bread, make this zucchini fritter instead.

This recipe works best with leftover rice that has dried out a little. If you use fresh rice I would add some bread crumbs into the mixture to soak up the excess moisture. Make sure you fry these on a hot skillet, cast iron is the best for getting a nice crispness to the outside.

Zucchini Fritters with Sriracha

by Diane Balch

Ingredients:

2 small zucchini grated
1 red onion minced
2 to 2 1/2 cups of cooked leftover white rice
1 eggs beaten
1/4 cup of parmesan or Romano cheese grated
dash of pimento d espelette or cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Optional: breadcrumbs

Directions:

1) Mix all of the ingredients, except for the oil, together in a large bowl.

2) Heat a cast iron skillet on medium high heat and add the oil to it. 

3) When the skillet is very hot (a splash of water immediately bubbles), make palm size patties and put them in the skillet.

4) Cook patties for about 3 minutes per side or until the outside gets golden brown. If you really want extra crunch to the outside, dip the patties in breadcrumbs before you fry them.

5) Serve with Sriracha sauce, yogurt makes a good topping too.

    1. I lost all of my codes in a techincal problem a while back and I haven't figured out where to regenerate them. If you could just copy the button as an image and attach a link to my page I would appreciate it. Another thing to put on my to do list.

  3. You're right Diane. Sriracha is everywhere, including in my cupboard and we use it often. A friend of mine calls it Vietnamese table sauce because he says it's on every table there just as ketchup is in the US. Your fritters look delicious and how smart of you to use what you have on hand. Thanks for hosting and I hope you and your family have a lovely weekend.

    1. That is interesting to hear that it's like ketchup, but oh, it tastes so much better than ketchup.

  5. Too funny we're featuring almost the same exact things!

    I keep seeing Sriracha sauce, but I have yet to try it. Is it spicy, tangy? What should I expect from it?

    1. It's a flavorful hot sauce. Not as hot as tabasco with a distict flavor.
