  1. Place the zucchini in a kitchen towel, gather up the edges, and squeeze hard over the kitchen sink to remove excess moisture. In heavy skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and cook zucchini, onion, and garlic until liquid evaporates. Remove from pan and place in mixing bowl; let cool for 30-40 minutes. Add beaten eggs, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup flour and seasonings to make a batter. You may need to add more flour if the batter doesn't hold together when dropped from a spoon. Heat 1 cup oil in heavy saucepan over medium heat until it reaches 375 degrees F (water droplets will sizzle and evaporate immediately) and, using a 1/4 cup measure, fill it half full of the batter and drop into the heated oil. Fry the fritters for 2-4 minutes on each side until deep golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve warm.
