Zucchini fritters

 

Ingredients


1 lb of zucchini (about 2 medium sized), coarsely grated

Kosher salt

Ground black pepper

1 large egg

2 scallions, finely chopped

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup grape seed oil or olive oil

Sour cream or plain yoghurt


Directions



Salt the zucchini with about 1 teaspoon of salt. Set zucchini on paper towel and also cover with paper towel to absorb excess moisture.

Whisk egg in a large bowl; add the zucchini, flour, scallions, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Mix to combine well.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook fritters in two batches. Drop six mounds of batter (2 Tbsp each) into the skillet. Flatten slightly. Cook, turning once, until browned, 4-6 minutes on each side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with salt. Repeat with remaining batter.

Serve immediately, with sour cream or plain yoghurt on the side.
