In a food processor or cheese grater, shred the zucchini and carrots. Add them to a large mixing bowl and sprinkle with 1 tsp salt. Mixwell and let rest for 10 minutes.
Use a cheesecloth to wring out the excess liquid as much as you can. Add the zucchini and carrots back to the mixing bowl. Add the ingredients from flour to onion powder. Mix and stir-well.
Preheat a large (12-inch) ceramic or non-stick skillet over medium heat, when it feels pretty warm to your palm (about 2-3 inches away) add ⅓ cup of oil.
Scoop the fritter mixture into a ¼ sized measuring cup. Pack it tight and press the mixture down with the back of the spoon so it won’t fall apart in the pan. Add it to the pan and gently press it down a bit with a spatula to make a round shaped patty. You should hear a gentle to moderate sizzling sound. Each pan should be able to hold about 5 patties.
Pan fry the fritters until they are golden brown outside and crispy, about 4 minutes first side and 3 minutes the flip side. Repeat the process and add more oil until you finish the mixture.
To keep the fritters crispy as you work on the second batch, you can rest them over a baking rack so the bottom won’t turn soggy. Some people also put them in a warmed oven to keep them warm. :)
Serve hot with paleo sour cream, plain yogurt, or lemon wedges, if you like! Personally, I like to pair them with a cup of tea!
Making ahead, Storing, and Reheating Tips:
To make ahead: you can make ahead these fritters. After you cook and cool them down to room temperature, pack them for storage in the fridge.
To store (fridge): store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
To store (freezer): Some people mentioned you can freeze them for up to 2 months with parchment paper between each patty but I haven’t tried this method so if you do and find success, please share it with us in the comments section below.
To reheat: reheat over a stovetop over medium to medium-low heat. You might not need to add oil at all. You can also reheat the fritters in the oven at 350F (for convection) or 375F (for regular oven without a fan) for 10-15 minutes, until warmed through.
