Zucchini Fritters Recipe: A Sicilian Treat at Three Farms Island

At Three Farms Island, we are passionate about sharing our love for nature, sustainable agriculture, and traditional Sicilian recipes. Our zucchini fritters recipe is a family favorite that combines the freshness of zucchini with the richness of Pecorino cheese and the crunch of semolina flour. As usual, traditional, fresh and simple. 4 ingredients


  • 2 tablespoons Pecorino cheese
  • 2 tablespoons semolina flour
  • 1 egg
  • Vegetable oil – old extravirgin olive oil


  1. Drain the Zucchini: Grate the zucchini and place them in a colander with a weight on top to remove excess water. Salt can help in this process.
  2. Combine the Ingredients: Add the remaining ingredients to the drained zucchini and mix well.
  3. Heat the Oil: Heat a small amount of vegetable oil or a lighter, two-year-old olive oil in a pan.
  4. Shape and Fry: Create small balls with the zucchini mixture and fry them in the hot oil, turning frequently until golden brown.

Tips and Variations:

  • For an extra crispy exterior and a tender interior, make sure to squeeze out as much water as possible from the grated zucchini.
  • Use a box grater instead of a food processor to grate the zucchini, as it helps to remove excess liquid.
  • Serve the zucchini fritters warm with a dollop of sour cream or a side of Greek yogurt for a refreshing twist.
