Zucchini Corn Fritters

 2 medium zucchini
 ½ onion
 ½ tsp salt
 1 cup corn
 ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  cup grated Parmesan cheese
 2 eggs
 ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour or breadcrumbs
 ¼ tsp pepper
 ¼ tsp paprika
 Olive oil for frying
 Sour cream for serving

1

Cut the ends of the zucchini off. Peel the onion. Grate both into a large bowl. Pour salt over the mixture and let sit for 10 minutes. Then, wrap the mixture in a kitchen towel or cheese cloth and squeeze dry.

2

If using frozen corn (like we did), steam the corn until cooked through.

3

Into the large bowl with the zucchini and onion mix, add all ingredients (except the oil and sour cream), and mix well.

4

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and pour in oil.

5

Working in batches, spoon about 1/4 cup of the batter into the oil and flatten down with a spoon. Cook until the fritters are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

6

Drain on paper towels until the entire batter is cooked. Serve with optional sour cream and enjoy!
