Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini Fritters came about when every neighbor around us started sharing their zucchini with us. What does one do with all that zucchini? One can only roast it and make so much zucchini bread!

We created these Zucchini Fritters with just simple ingredients we had on hand. Really that is where most great recipes come from. We have a theory that you don’t need a lot of fancy ingredients to make an incredible dish. This is no exception and it has such great flavors.

First start out by making spiralized zucchini using our favorite gadget the Panderno Spiralizer. This is one of those gadgets that makes cooking fun, especially if you have kids that want to help in the kitchen. Link below to the one we love, in fact it’s 40% off right now!

The key to making a great Zucchini Fritter is to make sure you get as much of the moisture out of the zucchini before assembling the ingredients together. This will guarantee a crispy fritter that won’t turn out soggy.

Following these simple instructions to make crispy Zucchini Fritters:

  1. Place zucchini in a colander.
  2. Set the zucchini in a colandar in the sink and toss with 1/2 tsp salt.
  3. Let stand 10 minutes.
  4. Then wring excess water out of zucchini with paper towels or a clean kitchen towel.
