Zucchini Fritters



  • 2 medium zucchini or summer squash (about 8 ounces each), trimmed
  • 1 medium onion, or 1 bunch scallions, or a handful garlic scapes
  • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano or other dry cheese such as sharp cheddar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano or marjoram
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for frying
  • Plain yogurt and apricot jam, for serving


  1. Step 1

    Grate zucchini on the large holes of a box grater, then squeeze dry in a clean kitchen towel or press in a ricer. Repeat with onion.

  2. Step 2

    Mix together zucchini, onion, cheese, flour, and herbs. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir in eggs just before frying.

  3. Step 3

    Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, coat skillet with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Scoop mounds (2 tablespoons each) of the zucchini mixture into skillet; flatten slightly using a spatula. Cook until golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  4. Step 4

    Transfer fritters to paper-towel-lined plates to drain. Serve with dollops of plain yogurt and apricot jam.

    *Alternatively, these can be served with salsa, greek yogurt, ketchup, mango chutney, etc.
