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
Garlic, scallions, or onion (approx 1-2 tablespoons or to taste)
Salt & pepper
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!
