Prep Time: 20 Min
– 2 medium-sized zucchini, grated – 1 teaspoon salt – 1/2 cup all-purpose flour – 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese – 2 green onions, finely chopped – 2 cloves garlic, minced – 1/2 teaspoon baking powder – 1/4 teaspoon black pepper – 2 large eggs, lightly beaten – Vegetable oil, for frying
Cook Time: 35 Min
Start by placing the grated zucchini in a colander and sprinkling it with salt. Allow it to sit for about 10 minutes to draw out the excess moisture.
After 10 minutes, use your hands or a clean kitchen towel to squeeze out the liquid from the zucchini.
Transfer the squeezed zucchini to a mixing bowl and add the flour, Parmesan cheese, green onions, garlic, baking powder, black pepper, and beaten eggs. Mix until well combined.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom.
Once the oil is hot, drop spoonfuls of the zucchini mixture into the skillet, flattening them slightly with the back of the spoon.
Cook the fritters for about 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown and crispy.
Once cooked, transfer the fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.
Repeat the process with the remaining zucchini mixture, adding more oil to the skillet as needed.
Serve the zucchini fritters warm as a delightful appetizer or as a side dish to complement your main course. They pair wonderfully with a dollop of sour cream or tzatziki sauce.
