DIRECTIONS

STEP 1

Grate skin-on, uncooked zucchini with a box grater.

STEP 2

Place the shredded zucchini in a colander (and preferably in the sink) and dash with a bit of sea salt. Toss to coat all noodles. The salt helps remove the excess water from the zucchini. Allow the noodles to sit for 10-20 minutes.

STEP 3

Squeeze as much water as you can out of the zucchinis. Then, lay zucchini on paper towels and pat dry with paper towels. Place zucchini in a medium mixing bowl.

STEP 4

In mixing bowl, add eggs, coconut flour, cumin, garlic, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

STEP 5

Heat pan over medium heat, adding a fat or oil.

STEP 6

Form zucchini fritter patties with hands. Place in pan. Form outside edges, so stray zucchini shreds don't stick outside the bun.

STEP 7

Cook 3-4 minutes each side, until underside begins to lightly brown.

STEP 8

Serve with a garlic aioli or spicy paleo mayo.
