- Place zucchini on a double layer of paper towels; gather edges and squeeze firmly over the sink to extract as much liquid as possible. In a medium bowl, combine zucchini, corn, and scallions. Make a well in center of mixture. Add egg and egg white, and stir with a fork until lightly beaten. Beat flour into egg mixture. Fold in vegetables, and stir in cheese, salt, and pepper.
- Preheat an air fryer, if necessary, to 400°F. Line bottom of air fryer basket with parchment paper, and coat with nonstick spray. Drop zucchini mixture by 2-tablespoonfuls into air fryer basket with a little space between each (you should be able to fit 4 to 6 fritters). Coat tops of fritters with nonstick cooking spray. Air-fry until browned and set, 8 to 10 minutes. Lift out cooked fritters with a metal spatula. Repeat process with remaining zucchini mixture.
