  1. Toss zucchini, yellow squash, and carrots with salt in a colander and drain for 15 minutes. Wrap vegetables in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out as much moisture as possible; transfer mixture to a bowl.
  2. Combine corn muffin mix, baking powder, and paprika in a bowl. Stir in vegetables and eggs until well mixed.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat, tilting skillet to spread oil evenly. Drop tablespoonfuls of the zucchini batter into the hot oil, flattening each dollop with the back of a spoon. Pan-fry until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Cool slightly before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • To store: Wrap the cooled fritters in aluminum foil and refrigerate for up to 2 days; rewarm in a low oven.

This was ok - I didn't have yellow squash so used all zucchini instead. I don't think I enjoyed the cornbread mix in this recipe. I did like the carrots in the recipe. I also think it needs onio...

This was a nice light fritter. The corn meal was a different change and a great way to try something new with all my garden zucchini. I took advice and added 2 tbsp of spicey rub in the mix. Cou...

Since we like anything Mexican, I used Mexican cornbread mix. Like some of the other reviews I think it would be very bland without it. Mine didn't get very crispy, maybe I didn't get enough w...

I loved these! They were very tasty. I used Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. I also took the advice of some of the other reviewers and added some onion powder to make them a little less bland. My fami...
