Step 1

In a medium frying pan add the olive oil, chopped zucchini, minced garlic,  salt and water.  Cook covered on medium low heat for approximately 10-15 minutes (make sure the zucchini does not brown, you want it tender), remove cover and continue to cook on low until the water has evaporated and zucchini is tender.

Step 2

Then remove from heat place in a large bowl and squish with a fork.  To the bowl add the shredded mozzarella, parmesan cheese, egg, bread crumbs (1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons), parsley and pepper, combine gently until compact.

Step 3

Form into 19 balls, then roll the zucchini balls in the 1/4 cup of bread crumbs, place on a plate, cover with plastic and refrigerate for at least an hour**.

Step 4

Remove from the fridge and either deep fry in hot oil (350 F / 180 C) until golden, or pan fry in a little hot oil, turn once or twice until golden, or bake in a pre heated 350F / 180C oven for approximately 25-30 minutes.  Sprinkle with a little salt before serving.  Enjoy/!
