Ingredients

  • 400g cod fillets
  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour (or any keto-friendly flour substitute)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Fresh lemon wedges for serving

Instructions

  1. 1. Prepare the Cod: Rinse the cod fillets under cold water and pat them dry with a paper towel. Cut the fillets into chunks and place them in a blender.
  2. 2. Blend the Cod: Pulse the blender until the cod is finely minced. Be careful not to over-blend; you want a chunky texture. Transfer the minced cod to a large mixing bowl.
  3. 3. Grate the Zucchini: Grate the zucchinis using a box grater. Place the grated zucchini in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out as much excess moisture as possible. Add the grated zucchini to the mixing bowl with the cod.
  4. 4. Mix the Ingredients: Add the almond flour, minced garlic, and eggs to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything together until well combined.
  5. 5. Form the Fritters: Use your hands to shape the mixture into small patties, about the size of your palm. Place the patties on a plate and let them rest for a few minutes.
  6. 6. Fry the Fritters: Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the fritters to the pan. Fry the fritters for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the fritters from the pan and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  7. 7. Serve: Arrange the fritters on a serving platter. Serve with fresh lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the top.
