- 4 medium zucchini, ends removed and shredded
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 3/4 cup pecorino cheese, grated
- 2 cups bread crumbs
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup mozzarella, shredded
- handful of parsley, chopped
- 3 Tbsp. olive oil
- peanut oil for frying
- salt, for taste
- black pepper, for taste
Using a large bowl, start by mixing the zucchini, onion, garlic, cheese, eggs, 3/4 cups of bread crumbs, parsley, salt and pepper together with your hands.
Next, make balls with the zucchini mixture about the size of a golf ball. Then, cover the balls in the remaining bread crumbs and add a little mozzarella to the top of each ball.
Lastly, fry for about 5 minutes or until golden brown in the peanut oil.
