Carrot Scallion Fritters

Carrot Scallion Fritters

From Gourmet, November 1990

 

Ingredients

3/4 cup coarsely grated carrot

1/2 cup thinly sliced scallion

1 large egg, beaten lightly

1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs

vegetable oil for deep-frying

Preparation

In a bowl combine well the carrot, the scallion, the egg, the bread crumbs, and salt and pepper to taste. In a large skillet heat 1 inch of the oil until it registers 375°F on a deep-fat thermometer, in batches drop the carrot mixture into the oil by tablespoons, and fry the fritters for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or until they are golden. Transfer the fritters to paper towels and let them drain. Serve the fritters as hors d’ oeuvres or as a side dish.
