Zucchini Fritters (makes about 14 2-3 inch sized fritters)

2 small zucchini
1 teaspoon salt
4 scallions/green onions, minced
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
i garlic clove, minced
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup flour
Canola oil for pan-frying
Sour cream, for serving, optional

1. Grate zucchini into a colander in the sink; toss with 1 teaspoons salt and let sit 10 minutes. Squeeze out the liquid.
2. Mix with 4 minced scallions, parsley, dill, egg, Parmesan and flour.
3. Add enough oil to a large skillet to lightly cover the bottom. Heat over medium heat. Pan-fry spoonfuls of the mixture flattening with a spatula, 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and season with salt. Serve with sour cream.
