  • 1tsplemon juice
  • pinch of salt

For Fritters:

  • 1tspfresh basil,minced
  • ½tsplemon zest
  • 1tspkosher salt,more to taste
  • ¼tspblack pepper
  • ½cupof extra virgin olive oil,or canola oil

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle grated zucchini with about 1 teaspoon of salt. Place in a sieve or colander over a bowl. Let sit for 10 minutes.

  2. Press down with a wooden spoon to push out more of the water. Wrap it in paper towels and try to squeeze out more liquid.

  3. Whisk together the sour cream, minced garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt into a medium bowl and set aside.

  4. Whisk the egg in a large bowl. Add the grated zucchini, flour, minced green onions, thyme, basil, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Mix to combine well.

  5. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat until the oil is shimmery and hot. Test the oil by flicking a little flour into it. If the flour sizzles, it’s ready.

  6. Working in batches, drop heaping tablespoons of batter into the skillet. Flatten slightly with the back end of a spoon or spatula. Cook, turning once, until browned. This will take 4 to 6 minutes on each side.

  7. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with salt. Repeat with remaining batter.

  8. Serve immediately with sour cream dipping sauce. Fritters can be kept warm by placing on a sheet pan in a warm oven, or reheated under a broiler for a minute or two.

  9. Serve as an appetizer, or as a vegetable side. For extra fun, top with a poached or fried egg.
