  • Air fryer or cast iron pan
  • Food processor with shredding attachment
  • Strainer
  • Cheese cloth or paper towels


  • 7 cups fresh shredded zucchini
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 TBS tapioca flour
  • 1 TBS arrow root powder or flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • * optional more salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • Chosen Foods Avocado oil spray for cooking
  • * olive oil (if using cast iron skillet)



  • Shred fresh zucchini, I use my Cusinart Food Processor with the shredding attachment.
  • Place shredded zucchini in a strainer in the sink, salt with the 2 tsp of salt and mix. Let stand for 30 min to strain all the juices of the zucchini.
  • Squeeze any excess juices out with cheese cloth or paper towels

Fritter Mix

  • While zucchini rests in strainer, mix all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Preheat air fryer to 360 degrees or cast iron skillet medium heat (be sure to add olive oil if using skillet).
  • After squeezing zucchini with cheese cloth or paper towel add to dry mix.
  • Add egg and mix well.
  • With a 1/4 measuring cup scoop up fritter batter, place batter on sprayed air fryer or cast iron skillet. I use an air fryer and I can cook 4 fritters at a time.
  • In air fryer cook at 360 degrees for 12-14 min (you do not need to flip the fritter). If using cast iron skillet fry on each side at medium heat until brown and crispy.
  • Remove from air fryer or skillet and let rest on a warm hold in the oven while cooking the rest of the fritters.
  • Serve with the Tzatziki sauce or garlic aioli. You can serve these with so many different sauces to give them a different flavor flare.
