Italian Zucchini Fritters with Lemon and Basil

Italian Zucchini Fritters may just be the best way to enjoy the season’s harvest!

Full of freshness and nostalgia, shredded zucchini is combined with fragrant lemon and basil and lots of green onion in a light batter to make beautifully-browned, crispy-on-the-outside and tender-on-the-inside fritters that you will want to make on repeat all summer.


Zucchini Fine Salt Green Onion Basil Eggs


Prep and gather all ingredients. Mix the flour and baking powder together in a small bowl and set aside.


Next, shred the zucchini, salt it to pull out its excess moisture, then squeeze out as much liquid as possible from it.


Place the drained, shredded zucchini in a large bowl and mix in the green onions, basil, beaten eggs, lemon zest and black pepper until well-combined.


Then, add the flour/baking powder mixture and stir until all ingredients are mixed well.


Add enough oil to a large skillet to cover the bottom of the pan by about ¼”. Heat the oil over medium/medium-low heat until bubbles form around a wooden spoon inserted in the oil.
