By Emma of Paleo With Mrs P.

I wanted to share these courgette, spring onion and lime fritters with you as they are so simple to make, with only a few pantry staples and taste divine. They are great on their own as a snack or as an accompaniment to any breakfast or brunch dish. Alternatively you could use them on top of a homemade beef / lamb and mint burger with some tomato salsa.

This recipe is: gluten-free, vegetarian and paleo.
