Another Zucchini Fritter Recipe. 7.24.16

Zucchini Fritters with Salsa.  7.24.16
Similar to prior recipe but with Mexican feel instead of Italian.

1 1/2 pounds zucchini, shredded.
1/4 onion, chopped.
One egg, stirred.
1/4 cup flour.
1/4 cup shredded cheddar
pepper to taste
salt to drain fluid from zucchini.

I found that hand-shredded zucchini works much better than food processor.  Hand shredding makes thinner shreds, which lose their fluid better.

Shred the zucchini.
Mix in 1 tsp salt.  Let sit 15 to 30 min.  Drain in collander and use spatula to squeeze as dry as reasonably possible.  Mix in the chopped onion.  Mix in the egg, then the cheese, then the flour.
Fry in olive oil.  I dust with black pepper.  Add a spoon of salsa.

The makes a good breakfast.


  1. Very healthy and looks delicious. I agree that hand shredded is better then the processor. I would squeeze the water out with my hand. Maybe shred some carrots in there too.

  2. We are now giving away some of our zucchinis. I will also shred some to freeze.

    You are right, adding carrots helps with the flavor and nutrition.
