Mix zucchini with cheese, egg and chopped scallions. Mix in the flour. Add pepper to taste.
Heat olive oil in a pan on a medium heat.
Form the fritters from the zucchini mix. One fritter equals about 2-3 tbsp of the mix.

*After frying you can leave fritters on a paper towel to get the excess oil off.
