Made these tonight with some of my garden zucchini. It was very good. Good alternative for people trying to stay away from fried! Taco seasonings and parmesan gave it a great flavor!

Although the taste is fine, this is not a fritter. It is simply fried zucchini, just like fried morel mushrooms, or zucchini blossoms, or green bean, etc. A fritter is a patty consisting of small bits of different foods using an egg as a binder.

Great flavor! Would, of course, be crispier if deep fried - but this is a fantastic alternative that had amazing flavor.

Made a batch of these and cooked on my Traeger grill. Absolutely awesome. My son and I ate them up before my husband even got to the table. Was short on time so used a bottle of prepared greek yogurt ranch dressing for dipping. Fantastic!

Seriously, I saw this recipe and thought how good could battered zucchini be? WOW. This was amazing. We loved it. the taco seasoning added a nice kick. I only wish I had more zucchini to make some more tonight. Yum!

Delicious! My husband loves breaded pan-fried zucchini; this is a very healthy and very tasty alternative. I served it with the Garden Chicken Cacciatore recipe also on the Taste of Home website and we used the Zucchini Fritters in place of pasta that the recipe author recommended. It made for a filling yet healthy meal. Easy preparation, healthy, delicious: I added this to me recipe box!

I have a similar recipe. Re-dip in liquid and rebread. They are very crispy this way but a lot more calories!
