Zucchini & Parmesan Cheese Fritters Recipe

You’ll need:

3 big zucchinis

½ tsp of salt

An egg

5 tbsp of flour

4 tbsp of Parmesan

¼ tsp of salt

Black pepper

A quart of cooking oil, for the frying

For toppings:

A pinch of salt

A tbsp of Parmesan

¼ cup of sour cream


First, grate the zucchini and mix it in a bowl with the salt. Leave it for 10 minutes to pull out the surplus water.

Then, put it into cheesecloth or a clean cloth and squeeze it out to remove all of the liquid. This is important to ensure the fritters are easy to fry and don’t become soggy.

Then, whisk the eggs and add the parmesan, flour, ¼ tsp of salt, and black pepper. Whisk everything together to get a lump-free mixture.

Add the zucchini.

Then, heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat and add from the batter in heaping tbsp. Make sure the fritters aren’t touching each other.

Fry them until golden brown on both sides, around 5 minutes on each side.

Transfer them to a dish lined with a paper towel.

Serve them sprinkled with salt and parmesan and sour cream on the side.
