Zucchini Fritters


Up until last summer the only way I would eat zucchini was deep-fried.

It’s one of the fastest ways to appeal to a picky eater and still tops the list as my favorite way to eat zucchini. Aside from baking it into cupcakes and breads.

If potato latkes have a twin this is them! The fritters are made by mixing shredded zucchini with Parmesan cheese, scallions, egg, parsley, dill and flour and then pan-fried to a deep golden brown.

One of the secrets to getting a good crust is to salt them first to draw out the water. It sounds like a bother but it’s really quite painless and definitely worth the extra time it takes.

The end result is a crusty outside and incredibly creamy inside! Almost like custard.

A little sour cream, tzatziki or remoulade makes the perfect accompaniment. But they disappear so fast you hardly need a sauce to go with them.

I learned too late that I should of doubled the recipe.

I hope you have better luck than I getting them to the table!

The alluring smell will mark a path straight to the kitchen where hungry hands will greedily grab for them…they’re seriously addicting!

    I'll have some crookneck summer squash from the garden here soon, and I'd love to try this recipe. I had a good laugh because I have an aunt who will only eat zucchini fried with potato. We asked her one day, "do you even know what zucchini tastes like." Quite plainly, she said no. Maybe she'd like this recipe. Thanks for stopping by the blog hop at Two for Tuesdays.
