Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini Fritters

We love zucchini in our household, and if you are looking for creative ways to use zucchini (especially if you have a garden full of them!), zucchini fritters are a great way to go!  These are easy to make, and chances are you probably have the ingredients on hand to prepare the zucchini.  This recipe is inspired by a post over at Damn Delicious – the fritters looked so tasty, I just had to try them!


1.5 lbs Zucchini (grated)

1/4 cup Flour

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 Egg

Garlic, scallions, or onion (approx 1-2 tablespoons or to taste)

Salt & pepper

Olive Oil



Wash and grate your zucchini.  Sprinkle with about 1 teaspoon of salt and toss.  Allow to sit and drain – the longer the better.  I let mine sit for about an hour and I pressed very firmly to press out as much fluid as possible.  Ideally, you may want to try to squeeze out as much liquid as possible with something like a cheesecloth.

* Draining the zucchini is key to good fritters!! *

Mix the wet and dry ingredients – zucchini, Parmesan cheese, egg, flour, garlic, and salt and pepper.  I used garlic, but you could use onion, scallions, etc.

Scoop by spoonfuls and form the mix into small patties.

Heat some oil in a pan.  Brown the fritters on each side until golden.  I press down on each fritter as I place them in the pan to flatten them out to the desired thickness and so that they cook evenly.

Serve while hot.  These are amazing with some sour cream!
