1lbzucchinishredded and pressed dry by wrining gently in clean kitchen towel (Shred with food processor or box grater. One pound of zucchini equals about 4 cups grated zucchini; or 2 cups of salted and squeezed zucchini)
In a large bowl, combine shredded zucchini with 1 teaspoon kosher (or coarse) salt. Set aside for ten minutes.
Wring out shredded zucchini by bundling it in a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth and gently squeezing OR by pressing in a colander. Do not skip this step! This ensures the perfect texture fritters (instead of watery, soup-y batter that won’t cook properly).
Combine zucchini with remaining fritter ingredients.
In a large, heavy skillet, heat oil over medium high heat (until gently shimmering). Plop batter by spoonful into heated oil. Gently smooth flat with spoon. Optional (but highly recommended): Place a spatter guard over the pan.
Cook 3-4 minutes each side. (Reduce heat to medium as needed.)
Place on a paper-towel lined plate or platter to cool slightly before serving.
Optional: Combine dipping sauce ingredients. Serve on side, for dipping or drizzling.
