• 2 zucchini
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper


    1. Take a grater and shred 2 or 3 medium zucchini.
    2. Add salt to the grated zucchini and mix. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes and then drain out all the water and excess liquid out of the fresh zucchini with a strong paper towel or clean kitchen towel.
    3. Preheat air fryer to 360 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare the air fryer basket with nonstick spray or parchment paper if needed.
    4. Whisk together the egg.
    5. In a medium mixing bowl, add the egg, flour, and spices to the shredded zucchini. Mix well.
    6. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop 2 tablespoon of the zucchini fritter batter and place into the bottom of the prepared air fryer basket. You should be able to make 5 fritters, leaving room in between each one.
    7. Spray the tops of each fritter with cooking spray for a crispier fritter. I prefer to use olive oil spray.
    8. Air fry the zucchini fritters for about 12 minutes.
    9. Let cool for a few minutes and then serve with your favorite dipping sauce.


This recipe was made using a Cosori 5.8qt Air Fryer. If you are using a different brand of air fryer, you may need to play with the cook times by adding or taking away a minute or two.
No one wants their zucchini fritters soggy, so make sure you are also squeezing out as much of the liquid from zucchini as possible with a strong paper towel or cheese cloth.
The skin of the zucchini has extra vitamins and nutrients and also gives the fritters a bit of added color. I typically will skin one of the zucchini and leave the other with the skin on.
