2 large eggs


¼ cup chopped fresh parsley


1 cup finely chopped yellow onion

The key to getting these Zucchini Fritters good and crispy, is to get as much of the moisture out as possible. Otherwise they’ll be mushy. And I don’t know about you, but mushy zucchini is about the last thing I’m in the mood for.

To do that you put the shredded zucchini in a bowl and toss it with salt. That will draw the liquid out of the zucchini.

After about 30 minutes you’ll see just how much water those zukes pack in ’em! You now want to thoroughly rinse and drain the shredded zucchini in a colander.

Next wring it out as best as you can. Probably the most effective way is to put it in a clean dish towel and squeeze the all the ater out of it.

Add the chopped herbs to the mixture along with the garlic, onion and eggs. Stir it to combine.

Next stir in the flour, Parmesan and spices.

Add the chopped herbs to the mixture along with the garlic, onion and eggs. Stir it to combine.

Next stir in the flour, Parmesan and spices. You’ll end up with a very moist – but not sopping wet – mixture.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil.

Once hot, drop about 3 heaping tablespoons’ worth of batter per fritter into the skillet and fry on both sides until nicely browned.

Place the fried fritters on a paper towels to drain.
