1 ½ pounds zucchini, grated
1 teaspoon salt
¼ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 large egg, beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
Step 1: Toss zucchini and salt together in a large colander and place in sink to drain for 10 minutes.
Step 2: Put zucchini in the middle of a piece of cheesecloth; wrap cheesecloth around zucchini and squeeze to drain as much moisture from zucchini as possible.
Step 3: Mix flour, Parmesan cheese, egg, garlic, kosher salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Stir in zucchini.
Step 4: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Step 5: Scoop batter by the tablespoon into the hot skillet and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
