Zucchini Fritters

This is definitely my new favorite zucchini recipe.  It's so easy and everyone loved it.  I grew up eating fried zucchini and I make it for my family now, but this is way LESS mess and according to the non-veggie lovers of my family "it's not slimy"  So it is a Win-Win situation for me!

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 Cups Grated Zucchini
  • 2 Tablespoons Finely Chopped Onion
  • Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt 
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
This made 10 fritters.  

Dipping Sauce
Ingredients:
  • 1/2 Cup of Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon Key Lime Juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
For sauce, combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.  Refrigerate until ready to use. 

In a medium bowl, combine grated zucchini and finely diced onion.  In a separate bowl lightly beat 1 egg.  In another bowl, mix together flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and baking powder.  
Add egg to zucchini and mix well.  Next, stir in flour mixture.
In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil.  When oil is hot form the zucchini into small patties and gently place them in the oil.
Cook for about 2 minutes or until a nice golden brown and then flip.
When they are cooked crisp on both sides, remove them from oil and place on a plate lined with a paper towel.  The paper towel will absorb any extra oil.
Then serve hot with the creamy lime dipping sauce.  YUM!
