Preparation time : 15 minutes
Cooking time : 25 minutes

Serves 2-3

Ingredients :

1/2 pound large or medium shrimp (peeled, deveined and cut into 1/4-inch pieces)
1/2 teaspoon Essence (seasoning) (recipe follows)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup chopped yellow onions
Pinch salt
3 large eggs (beaten)
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
1 pound fresh zucchini, grated using the small holes on a box grater
Vegetable oil, for deep-frying

Method :

1. Season the shrimp lightly with the Essence and set aside.

2. In a medium skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring, until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the shrimp and pinch of salt and cook, stirring, until the shrimp turn to pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside.

3. In a large pot or deep-fryer, heat the oil to 360 degrees F.

4. In a large bowl, make the batter by whisking the eggs, milk, baking powder, salt, and cayenne. Add the flour 1/4 cup at a time, beating and incorporating until all is used and the batter is smooth. Stir in the parsley. Add the shrimp mixture and grated zucchini to the batter and fold to mix.

5. Using a small ice cream scoop measuring 1 1/2 tablespoons, drop the batter into the hot oil. When the fritters pop to the surface, roll them around with a slotted spoon in the oil to brown them evenly and cook until golden brown on all sides, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels and season with additional Essence.

6. Ready for serve.
