  • --------------------
  • Zucchini Fritters
  • --------------------
  • 1 lb of zucchini ~450 grams
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp chives
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 4 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • salt & pepper to taste

  • --------------------
  • Zucchini Fritters
  • --------------------
  • Shred the zucchini, toss with 1 1/2 tsp salt and place in a colander for about ten minutes.
  • Squeeze as much water out of the zucchini as possible. The weight will be reduced by around half (I had about 200 grams after squeezing out all of the water).
  • Toss the zucchini in a bowl with the chives, garlic, parmesan cheese, adding salt & pepper to taste and add egg.
  • Mix flour and baking powder together, stir into zucchini until evenly mixed without clumps.
  • In a pan on medium heat, add enough vegetable oil to evenly coat the pan.
  • Once heated, using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, place the fritter in the pan, flattening with a spatula.
  • Fry until golden brown on each side, then place on paper towel to remove excess oil.
  • Serve with dipping sauce.
