  • 3 medium zucchini squash - grated
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion - grated
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • freshly ground black pepper - to taste
  • canola oil - for grilling
  • pasta sauce - I used store bought
  1. Cut the ends off the zucchini squash, and grate. Sprinkle salt on top, stir to combine, and set aside for 15 minutes. This will allow the liquid to be released.

  2. Using a double layer of paper towel (or a clean dish towel), squeeze as much liquid out into the sink as possible. Remove zucchini into large bowl.

  3. Grate onion and add it to bowl. Add bread crumbs, eggs, and parmesan cheese.

  4. Mix well, and pat into small patties.

  5. Preheat grill pan to medium high heat. Add canola oil to coat the pan, and cook fritters in batches.

  6. Cook fritters for several minutes on each side, until done to your desired crunchiness.

  7. Serve with a spoonful of pasta sauce, and another sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
