– Grate the zucchini or blend in food processer and place into a colander.

– Squeeze the zest of one lemon into the bowl.
– Add the peas, eggs and almond meal too and mix everything together well.
– Test cook one fritter to check it stays together. Add a little more almond meal if you need.
– Cook your fritters over medium heat with some coconut oil (about 2 minutes each side until golden brown)
– While the fritters are cooking, roll your smoked salmon pieces around a teaspoon of creamed cheese to create a small roll.
– Place the smoked salmon with cream cheese on a plate and add the cooked fritters.
– Serve and enjoy!
