Zucchini Fritters
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 35 mins
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • Canola oil
  1. Shred the zucchini by hand or in a food processor, then transfer to a mixing bowl and add the salt.
  2. Using your hands, squeeze out as much water as possible into the sink or a bowl (I usually get ¼ cup per zucchini).
  3. Mix in the pepper and paprika, then the onion, egg, flour and baking powder well.
  4. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  5. Once the oil is hot, drop 1 tablespoon of batter onto the skillet and press down with the back of the spoon to flatten. Flatter is better so they cook through!
  6. Repeat until the skillet is filled, then cook each side for about 3 minutes (should be golden brown before flipping).
  7. Serve with sour cream.
Makes ~10 fritters
