    Bone Man's Note:

    The original of this slightly modified recipe came from "Food and Wine" magazine. This appetizer or side dish makes several 3" patties and has it all -- it's healthy and light, wonderfully fast and easy to prepare, has a lot of eye appeal, cheap to make, and tastes incredible. I notice that most zucchini fritter recipes include cheese -- this one does not but the bright flavor certainly does not suffer for the lack of that particular ingredient. I use these zucchini fritters for my most high-end social/culinary occasions -- but I also love them for brunch with a glass of white wine. Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Shred the zucchini squash on a box shredder (large side) or with a mandolin.
    2. 2
      In a medium bowl, mix the salt and water and allow the shredded zucchini to soak in the refrigerator for up to 45 minutes.
    3. 3
      In another medium bowl, mix the chopped parsley, minced garlic, and lemon zest. Drain, rinse, (cold tap water) and redrain the zucchini -- pat it dry with paper towels and add to the parsley mixture.
    4. 4
      Season the mixture with the table salt and pepper, then add in the beaten eggs and carefully stir in the flour to make a batter.
    5. 5
      In a medium-sized no-stick skillet, over medium-high heat, bring the olive oil up to temperature until you see some rippling. Then spoon in heaping tablespoons of the zucchini batter. Make about three per batch -- each one, after being mashed down a bit with a spatula should be about three inches across. Cook for about one minute per side (until golden brown) before turning.
    6. 6
      Place finished patties on paper towels to drain while finishing the remaining patties.
    7. 7
      Serve with lemon wedges as garnish, on the side.

      Fabulous light and tasty fritters. I served them with a dollop of sour cream and devoured them all.

      These are so good! I served them with a Taziki dip and they were gone in minutes. The only change I made was to use an egg substitute.
