Let's Get Cooking

Trim the ends from zucchinis and coarsely grate.

Squeeze out as much excess moisture as possible. 

Transfer to a bowl and stir in self-raising flour, Parmesan, shallots, egg, parsley, oregano, salt and nutmeg. 

Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl, mix well and set aside for serving.
