Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
15 mins 15 mins 30 mins 4 servings


  • 2 medium zucchinis, grated (about 2 cups) (450g)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (30g)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (20g)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Sour cream or Greek yogurt, for serving (optional)
  • Fresh herbs (such as parsley or dill), for garnish (optional)

Cooking Instructions

  1. Place the grated zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let it sit for about 10 minutes to draw out the excess moisture. Then, squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the zucchini using your hands or a clean kitchen towel.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the grated zucchini, flour, Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, green onions, black pepper, and beaten eggs. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.

  3. Heat a large skillet or frying pan over medium heat and add enough vegetable oil to coat the bottom of the pan.

  4. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the zucchini mixture and drop it onto the hot pan, flattening it gently with a spatula to form a fritter. Repeat with the remaining mixture, leaving some space between each fritter.

  5. Cook the fritters for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy. You may need to cook them in batches, depending on the size of your pan.

  6. Once cooked, transfer the fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.

  7. Serve the Zucchini Fritters warm with sour cream or Greek yogurt on the side, if desired. Garnish with fresh herbs, such as parsley or dill, for an extra burst of flavor.
