Potato and Zucchini Fritters

  2. Add 1/2 tsp salt and mix into the zucchini to help remove excess water

  4. Shred potatoes and rinse them in a colander under cold water to remove excess starch; let thoroughly dry
  5. Combine all in ingredients in a large bowl and mix with hands until mixture is uniformly mixed
  6. In a medium-to-large frying pan heat 2 cups of your preferred frying oil (choose an oil with a high smoke point like canola)
  7. Portion mix into 3oz balls, and flatten the portions in between palms to make a pancake shape
  8. Fry in oil until a nice golden brown crust is achieved on both sides
  9. Optional (demonstrated in video): Bake the fritters on an oiled sheet pan for 20 min at 350° with a flip halfway
