Serves 6-8

For the fritters…

2 medium courgettes, grated

½ tsp sea salt, plus extra to serve

⅜ cup self-raising flour

⅛ cup rice or cornflour

2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

¼ tsp ground white pepper

2 tsp mint leaves, finely chopped

¾ cup halloumi, grated

2 large eggs

2 spring onions, finely sliced

vegetable oil, for frying

For the chilli honey drizzle…

2 tbsp honey

1/2 tsp pul biber or other chilli flakes

2 lemons, zested

What you need to do…

-To make the chilli honey drizzle, warm the honey, 2 tbsp water, chilli flakes and lemon zest in a small pan until bubbling and syrupy (about 3 mins).

-Pour into a bowl.

-Coarsely grate the courgettes, then place in a sieve and sprinkle over the salt.

-Allow to drain for 30 mins, then use your hands to squeeze out the liquid – you want them as dry as possible.

-Combine the flours, sesame seeds and pepper in a bowl.

-Add the mint, halloumi and courgette, and toss lightly to combine.

-Crack in the eggs and use a fork to stir them into the mixture along with the spring onions.

-Stir until you have a thick batter.

-Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large, heavy bottomed non-stick frying pan and swirl to coat the base.

-Add 2 heaped tbsp of the batter for each fritter, flattening them down with a spatula, and fry for a couple of minutes until golden.

-Flip them over and press down with the spatula, then fry for another few minutes until golden and cooked all the way through.

-Drain on kitchen paper and season with a few flakes of sea salt. Drizzle with the chilli honey to serve.
