  • 1.5 lbs zucchini grated, about 3 cups
  • 1 tsp kosher or sea salt
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup grated parmigiano reggiano cheese

  • 1 large egg beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil


  • Place grated zucchini in a colander lined with a clean dish towel or cheesecloth over a bowl or in the sink. Add salt and gently toss to combine. Let sit for ten minutes.
  • After ten minutes, gently squeeze out the moisture from your zucchini.
  • in a large bowl, combine zucchini, flour, parmigiano, garlic and egg and mix. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
