zucchini fritters – smitten kitchen recipe

A few weeks ago I tried my hand at zucchini fritters. I was really surprised at how great they turned out. I had to try Smitten Kitchen’s version. They are pretty great too. I think (at least when I!) made them they were a little too floury (perhaps I didn’t mix them well enough!).

I’ve thought a lot about making fritters in the past but never really had the right tools to do it. I was just gifted a veggetti grater so all bets are off – fritters every day!

There’s a few recipes that I want to try and to be honest I was a little skeptical about this one. I was afraid it wouldn’t have any complex taste. But I was totally surprised, they are full of flavor! These little guys are fried in a cast iron skillet so not straight vegetable but they really are delightful with one ingredient that really sends them over the edge!

This is made so much easier with this little shredder! You could also use a box cheese grater. But be sure to get out as much water as you can. I went through several paper towels but it makes the difference in the long run. 
lemonLemon is perfect in the recipe. It really sends the fritters over the edge and brings out the flavor in the zucchini. I not only used it in the recipe as instructed but I also squeezed a wedge over the fritter before I ate it – OMG THIS IS THE WAY ALL FRITTERS SHOULD BE EATEN!
Like I mentioned above I squeezed lemon juice on top but I also had a dollop of sour cream! These definitely pass the test in my book! I only adjusted the recipe adding oregano instead of parsley, I just put a sprinkling in as I had no fresh parsley.
