Zucchini Corn fritters BAKED!
Zucchini is a very versatile vegetable, in that it takes to any flavor profile, it is like a sponge. It does not add any specific taste of its own, which makes it very easy to incorporate in a variety of ways. The moisture from the zucchini makes it very useful for baking these fritters and keep them juicy. They are crunchy and spicy with the addition of jalapeños. The mint flavor when baked fills your entire home with the perfume of Spring….. did I not say - “Spring is in the air”!!
