Zucchini Fritters

My mom made corn fritters all the time for our family when I was a kid, and when I was a poor newlywed with an overabunce of zucchini (we grew some in front our little duplex and it went nuts!) I made a variation of the idea for zucchini.
I still make them, especially this time of year when zucchini is trying to take over the earth. : )
These do have alot of zucchini in them, you could definetely cut the amount in half even if you wanted, but I figure if I’m going to make zucchini fritters I should be using up a bunch of zucchini!
And the great thing about these is that kids have no idea they are eating vegetables!  Serve them plain or with a little butter.
ZUCCHINI FRITTERS
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 T olive oil
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp salt, divided
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
2 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
olive oil, for cooking
Sprinkle 1 tsp of the salt over the zucchini and let sit for 10 minutes.
Mix remaining ingredients together, then squeeze excess moisture from the zucchini and stir in.
Heat a little oil in a skillet over medium high heat and spoon 1/4 cupfulls into pan, being careful not to crowd the pan.  Repeat with remaining batter
Cook until golden brown, a few minutes, then flip and cook until cooked through.
