Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided

Instructions

  1. Shred zucchini (I keep the skin on) and place on a paper towel. Form a pouch with zucchini inside. Squeeze as much moisture as possible. I do this over the sink.
  2. Place shredded zucchini in a large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and stir well.
  3. Heat up oil in a skillet.
  4. Using a spring ice cream scoop (or two tablespoons), form fritters in a pan and fry for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Fry 3 to 4 fritters at a time, depending on the size of your skillet.
  5. Remove from pan. Cool slightly, then serve.

Recipe Notes

  • For the best crispy fritters, keep the fritters about 1/4″ thick.
  • Use breadcrumbs in place of flour for extra crispy fritters!
  • Vegetable fritters can be frozen after cooking. Cool them completely, then place them in a freezer-safe container or bag and freeze for up to 2 months.
