Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12
  • 1 pound zucchini (approximately 2 zucchini)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup parsley, finely chopped
  • black pepper
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • vegetable oil
  • sour cream
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Trim ends of zucchini and shred on large holes of a box grater or in your food processor.
  3. In a large bowl, toss zucchini with 1 teaspoon kosher salt and let rest for 10 minutes. Then wring out zucchini and toss back into bowl. (You'll be amazed at how much water comes out of a handful of this zucchini.)
  4. Taste the zucchini and add salt as needed.
  5. Mix in egg, parsley and some freshly ground black pepper.
  6. Stir flour and baking powder together in a small bowl then add it to the zucchini and mix until well combined.
  7. In a large skillet, add 2 tablespoons of oil and heat over medium heat. Once oil shimmers add a few tablespoons full of zucchini mixture to pan. Gently flatten them and don't let edges touch.
  8. When the edges are golden brown, carefully flip the fritters. Continue cooking until that side is golden brown. (total time is about 6 minutes) Then remove to a paper towel lined plate.
  9. Repeat with remaining zucchini. Be sure to keep the pan oiled so that the fritters don't stick and burn.
  10. Place fritters onto a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes (this gives them an extra crispness).
  11. Remove from oven.
  12. Top with sour cream and serve
