Ingredients

  • 3 large zucchini, finely grated

  • ½ teaspoon salt

Batter:

  • 1 egg

  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • oil for frying

Toppings:

  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste

  • 1 pinch salt

  • ¼ cup sour cream, for topping

Directions

  1. Combine zucchini and salt in a bowl and stir to combine. Set aside for 10 minutes. Pour mixture onto a clean dish towel or cheesecloth and squeeze to drain completely.

  2. Whisk egg in a bowl and add flour, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Stir in drained zucchini and mix well.

  3. Heat oil in a medium-sized pan over medium-high heat. Add batter by the tablespoon. Cook fritters until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per batch. Transfer to a serving plate and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and salt. Serve immediately with sour cream.
