Recipe Tips

  • Preparing Zucchini – We used a cheese grater to thinly slice the zucchini with the large holes of a box grater. But you can also use a food processor.
  • Remove Liquid – It is best remove as much liquid from the shredded zucchini for the best fritters. We like to use a kitchen towel for best results.
  • Use Measuring Cup – To ensure that zucchini fritters are about the same size, we recommend using a measuring cup to pour on the griddle.
  • Cooking Time – Cooking time will vary depending on the size of your fritters and the temperature of your griddle.
