  1. Place the zucchini, flour, baking soda, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, oregano, marjoram, basil, black pepper, and kosher salt into a large bowl, and stir to thoroughly mix. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with buttermilk, and stir the egg mixture into the zucchini mixture to make a batter.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until the oil shimmers with heat, and gently spoon about 1/4 cup of zucchini batter per fritter into the hot oil. Fry the fritters in batches until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side; drain on paper towels, and set the fritters aside to keep warm.
  3. To serve, place a slice of mozzarella cheese and a slice of tomato on top of each fritter; sprinkle with sea salt.

Wonderful recipe! Very forgiving in its composition. I didn't have enough eggs or any buttermilk on hand. I used one egg and substituted 2% milk for the buttermilk (plus a little extra volume to make up for the missing eggs). Still delish with the modifications.

I only would give this 2 stars as it is rather bland. I think that more Parmesan cheese would help and I would grill the mozzarella on top of the tomato before placing it on top of the fritter.

Great recipe - followed it as best as I could (didn't have buttermilk, used 1% with a splash of vinegar... didn't have marjoram, sprinkled a bit of sage in). Made half the recipe and included one potato (didn't want to break open a whole zucchini for 1/2 c) and I don't think that changed the taste a lot. They were delicious! Puffed up a bit, added mozzarella (would've been better if fresh) and some banana legs tomatoes from the garden to garnish. Thanks for a great recipe! You could totally add some different seasonings to spice things up a bit!

Wonderful fritters! I followed the recipe as stated, only I made my fritters a little smaller than 1/4 cup batter per fritter. I used Old German Heirloom tomatoes, and also topped each fritter with a little chopped fresh basil. I served this with grilled "Balsamic Chicken." Nom! To reheat these fritters, microwave until just warm, then heat the rest of the way in the toaster oven...

This was EXCELLENT!!!!! I didn't have Marjoram or buttermilk on hand so I substituted with Garam Marsala for Marjoram and I used almond milk + 2 tsp of lemon in place of the buttermilk. This was soooooo good!! :D I actually joined the site just so I could rate this recipe!

I love this recipe! It is so delicious. I especially love it with a little goat cheese spread on the fritter and topped with a fresh home grown tomato! I have made them twice so far. I shredded the zucchini and let it sit in a colander on paper towels to drain off some excess moisture while I assembled the other ingredients. Both times I used 1/2 Whole Wheat White flour and 1/2 AP Flour. The second time I baked them in the oven at 425 for 7 mins, flipped them and cooked for another 7 mins. Still delicious and healthier. They also toast up real well as leftovers!

Followed exactly- so yummy! Be sure to mix the dry ingredients first, add zucchini and mix very well to coat prior to adding egg mixture. I can see myself manipulating this in the future, but it is fantastic as it is! Must use fresh, good quality ingredients!!!

This is a simple and forgiving recipe - I forgot the parmesan cheese and it was still a hit! I used roasted cherry tomatoes instead of fresh and added chopped scallions for texture. Definitely a recipe I will use again!
