Cooking Tips

  • Cast Iron Skillet: I find using a cast iron skillet is great for cooking your fritters. Ensure the oil is hot when you scoop the fritters onto the pan.


  • Fresh Herbs: Our recipe has salt and pepper and garlic. However to add more flavor consider adding, fresh parsley, fresh dill to your fritters.
  • Yellow Squash: You can switch out the zucchini for yellow squash if you fancy. Squash fritters will cook exactly the same.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

  • Fridge: If you have leftover fritters, store in a container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
  • Freeze: Freezing zucchini fritters is easy to do. Simply place them into a zip lock bag or air tight container. You can freeze zucchini fritters for up to 6 months.
  • Reheat: To reheat pop in the microwave, or under the broiler until heated through.

What To Serve With This Recipe?

Serve zucchini fritters with one of the following:

  • Avocado Salsa: Creamy avocados mixed with diced tomatoes, onions, and cilantro for a refreshing kick.
  • Greek Yogurt Tzatziki: A cool cucumber and mint yogurt sauce to balance the heat of the fritters.
  • Beet and Feta Salad: Fresh baby spinach tossed with roasted beetroot, crumbled feta, cherry tomatoes, and a zesty vinaigrette.
  • Cabbage Slaw: Shredded cabbage and carrots in a tangy vinegar dressing for a crisp contrast.


What Are Zucchini Fritters?

Zucchini fritters are bits and pieces of fried zucchini, spices and other ingredients. They taste delicious and even better you can enjoy them as a low carb snack or side dish to any meal.

Can You Make Zucchini Fritters in the Air Fryer?

Yes you can! Just place the fritters into the air fryer in a single layer and air fry for 8-10 minutes at 180 degrees. Be sure to turn the fritters half way through to allow them to cook evenly on each side.

Best Way To Shred Zucchini

We use a regular box grater but you can also use a food processor if this has a grating tool. A food processor will be much faster.

Why Are My Fritters Soggy?

To prevent soggy fritters be sure to squeeze out any water from the shredded zucchini and carrot. If you fail to do this your fritters won’t be as crispy.

Can I Add Flour To These Fritters?

Yes, you can certainly add flour to fritter batter to adjust its consistency and texture. Whole wheat flour or almond flour can be good choices. Adding a spoonful should not only help with texture but also contribute some additional flavor and nutrients.
