Zucchini Fritters

light and crisp zucchini fritters with a citrusy lemon yogurt sauce & fresh dill

servings: 6

Ingredients

Scale

Lemon Yogurt Sauce

  • 1 cup (8oz) greek yogurt 
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • kosher salt

Zucchini Fritters

  • 3 medium zucchini, shredded (1 ½ lbs total shredded)
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill, plus more to garnish 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder 
  • vegetable oil

Instructions

Lemon Yogurt Sauce 

  1. Combine the yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, and olive oil in a mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Stir in a pinch of salt to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Zucchini Fritters

  1. Place the shredded zucchini in the center of a large, clean kitchen towel. Twist the towel and wring out the excess liquid from the zucchini over a sink, squeezing until the zucchini is as dry as possible. Transfer the zucchini to a bowl. 
  2. Add the scallions, dill, eggs, and egg yolk. Use a fork to beat the eggs and combine the ingredients. Add the flour, salt, and baking powder. Use a wooden spoon to incorporate, mixing until just combined. 
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add enough oil to come about ¼” up the edge. Once hot, spoon the fritter batter into the oil in small mounds. Use the back of the spoon to flatten each fritter to about ¼”. 
  4. Cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Use a metal spatula to gently flip the fritters and finish cooking on the other side, about 2-3 more minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Watch the fritters closely and adjust the heat if needed so they don’t burn. 
  5. Transfer the fritters to a plate lined with paper towels to quickly drain. Season with a pinch of salt. Repeat the cooking process with the rest of the batter. 
  6. Serve immediately with the lemon yogurt sauce on the side. Garnish with fresh dill leaves.
