How to make zucchini fritters

The key to making these super delicious zucchini fritters is to squeeze the water out of the grated zucchini. You could place the grated zucchini in a colander, sprinkle with salt and leave for 10 minutes to help remove the excess water. I squeeze mine out using a simple thin kitchen towel, but you can use a nut milk bag or muslin square.

Cassava flour is grain-free flour that I use mostly in my cooking. The cassava flour help bind these fritters but you could substitute this with any flour you like or have.
