Zucchini Fritters

Mmmmm! Zucchini! Never get tired of zukes!

2 small zucchini (I used 1 large)
1 egg, beaten
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
¼ cup flour
3 tsp salt, divided
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp parsley (optional)
Olive oil, for frying
Grate zucchini. I grated mine into my strainer/colander in the sink then mix it with 2 teaspoons of salt and allow it to rest for about 10 minutes. Squeeze out as much of the liquid as possible.
In a large bowl, toss grated zucchini with the egg. Add all the dry ingredients and mix well.
Heat the oil in a skillet/pan. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture in the hot oil, flattening with a spatula, 3 to 4 minutes per side. I let mine cook for about 6 minutes per side (flipping twice and flattening to make sure they cooked evenly) to ensure that they were crispy.
Drain on a paper towel. Enjoy!
