Not Grilled Pork Chops and Zucchini Fritters

The weather changed tonight's dinner from the grill to the oven. I do think the pork would have tasted better on the grill but the meat was flavorful and tender. I marinated the pork chops in 2 tsp of olive oil, 1 tsp of dijon mustard, 2 tbsp of soy sauce, 1 tsp of brown sugar, and salt and pepper. 30 minutes in a 375-degree oven and it was perfect!

Now about those Zucchini Fritters. They were a hit! One zucchini chopped pretty small and one shallot also chopped small. Let's say minced for both. Mix them in a bowl with 2 eggs, 1/4 cup of flour, 1/4 Parmesan Cheese, 2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley (or you can use dried parsley), salt, and pepper. The batter should be thick enough to drop spoonfuls.

Heat Vegetable oil, or whatever oil you like to use, in a large sauté pan and heat the oil. Drop the batter into the hot oil by spoonfuls. Remove the fritters when they are browned on all sides to a dish lined with paper towels. Salt them immediately after they come out of the oil. To quote Alton Brown, "You only get one chance to do this." Serve immediately!
