These zucchini fritters are unbelievably easy to make, low in calories, and the perfect way to sneak in some veggies!
- 1 ½ pounds zucchini, grated
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Step 1
Toss zucchini and salt together in a large colander and place in sink to drain for 10 minutes.
Transfer zucchini to the center of a piece of cheesecloth; wrap cheesecloth around zucchini and squeeze to drain as much moisture as possible.
Mix flour, Parmesan cheese, egg, and garlic together in a large bowl. Stir in zucchini, then season with kosher salt and pepper.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Working in batches, scoop tablespoonfuls of zucchini mixture into the hot skillet and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
