Fiesta Zucchini Fritters With Cilantro Mayo Sauce


Mexican spiced zucchini fritters topped with a tangy cilantro lime mayo. The perfect addition to your meal!



Cilantro Mayo Sauce


  1. Grate your zucchini by hand or in a food processor.
  2. Sprinkle the 1/2 tsp of salt over the zucchini and let it sit in a colander over a bowl for 10 minutes.
  3. While you’re waiting for the zucchini, you can make the cilantro lime mayo. Combine the handful of chopped cilantro, the mayo, and the lime juice in a bowl and stir until combined. Add cayenne, to taste (optional).
  4. After 10 minutes of sitting, wring out the zucchini in a cheese cloth or kitchen towel. Try to get as much of the moisture out as possible.
  5. Combine the graded zucchini, the spices, egg, and flour in a bowl and stir to combine.
  6. Heat your pan to medium/medium-low. And drizzle a little oil.
  7. Using a 1 Tbsp scoop, add the mixture to the hot pan and flatten a bit. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, until browned and cooked through.
  8. Top with the cilantro mayo and enjoy!
