Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat and spoon in a heaped ¼ cup of zucchini prawn mixture for each fritter, flattening into even rounds with the back of a spoon. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes until golden.


Repeat with oil and remaining mixture, spacing fritters evenly apart in the pan.
