Zucchini Fritters


In my opinion this is the best way to get zucchini in your picky family members diet! These are so good I could eat them every day! We added jalapenos to ours which made them super yummy with a little heat; we followed this exact recipe using patty-pan squash, and honestly, I thought it was better then with the zucchini, it was lighter, but either way, I love them both!



+1 1/2 pounds zucchini, grated  

+1 teaspoon salt  

+1/4 cup all-purpose flour  

+1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

+1 large egg, beaten

+2 cloves garlic, minced  

+kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste  

+2 tablespoons olive oil


Toss zucchini and salt together in a large colander and place in sink to drain for 10 minutes.

Put zucchini in the middle of a piece of cheesecloth; wrap cheesecloth around zucchini and squeeze to drain as much moisture from zucchini as possible.

Mix flour, Parmesan cheese, egg, garlic, kosher salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Stir in zucchini.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Scoop batter by the tablespoon into the hot skillet and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
