Zucchini Fritters. Crispy and creamy and yummy. #recipe #tastespotting #yum #instayum #instafood #instagood #ieatthereforeicook #ontheblog #photograzing @seriouseats #food #foodie #foodblog #zucchini

If you have ever tried to grow zucchini, you understand how fast they can grow. You leave a baby zucchini alone for a few days and it becomes the size of a baseball bat. And you are asking yourself, “how did that happen”? Whether you have a zucchini the size of your head or normal size, you can make these zucchini fritters with them.

This is one of my favorite comfort foods. It also doesn’t hurt that it is super quick to make. I made this quite a bit in college as well as it is a crowd-pleaser. The key here is to make sure the shrimp is cooked properly. Do not overcook the shrimp! They will taste like rubber. I have step by step pictures to help you make sure that this is a great pasta dish.

Clean and season the shrimp with…
