Ingredients

Shop Kitchen ▾
  • 1 6 - ounce container 2% Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds zucchini, shredded
  • 2/3 cup sliced scallions
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 1 egg yolk, beaten
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 200 degrees . In a small bowl, mix yogurt, lime juice, lime zest and 1/4 tsp of the salt until smooth.
  2. Squeeze shredded zucchini in a clean kitchen towel until most of the moisture is absorbed. In a medium bowl, combine zucchini, scallions, 1/2 cup of the cilantro, the egg, flour, remaining 1 tsp salt and the pepper.
  3. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil over medium-high heat in a large saute pan. When shimmering, add zucchini mixture in four 1/4-cup portions. Flatten fritters with a spatula until they are 3 inches in diameter. (It will require 3 batches.) Cook fritters 3 minutes, until browned, then flip and cook another 3 minutes. Transfer fritters to a baking sheet and place in oven to keep warm. Continue cooking fritters, adding 1 more tbsp of oil each time. Serve with lime yogurt and garnish with remaining cilantro.
