  • 3 Cups Zucchini, grated (about 2 large zucchini)
  • 2/3 Cup Onion, diced
  • 3/4 tsp Salt, divided
  • 1 Cup Fresh corn (about 1 large ear)
  • 1/3 Cup Mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1/3 Cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 6 Tbsp Fresh parsley, minced
  • 1/2-1 Tbsp Garlic, minced (depending how much you like Garlic )
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon zest
  • 1/2 Cup All purpose or GF 1:1 flour (67g)
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 Large egg, whisked
  • Avocado oil, for frying


  • Place the grated zucchini and onion on a large kitchen towel and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of salt. Let sit while you prep the other ingredients (let it sit for at least 10 mins)
  • Use a sharp knife to cut the kernels off the corn and place into a large bowl.
  • Add in the cheese, parsley, garlic and lemon zest.
  • Wrap the zucchini and onion in the kitchen towel and wring out as much water as you can. Put some muscle into it and do it a few minutes because the more water you get out, the crispier the fritters.
  • Add the zucchini mixture into the bowl and stir.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder, then stir into the zucchini mixture. Stir in the egg until well mixed.
  • Heat a thin layer of oil on medium heat and drop the fritters by scant 1/4 cup scoops, using the spoon to press out about 1/3 inch thick.
  • Cook until golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate and blot off excess oil.
  • Serve with dip or sour cream and DEVOUR!
