Zucchini Halloumi Fritters

These fritters are a perfect brunch dish. Creamy and salty, crispy and smokey. 

It is higher in fat due to halloumi cheese and avocado, however, low in carbs and high in protein. The recipe serves two and is plenty enough. Add a little green salad or some tomatoes to make it a nice dinner. 

for a vegetarian version leave out the ham
