Crispy Zucchini Cakes

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 small zucchini (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt (divided)
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 egg - lightly beaten
  • 1 garlic clove - minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 Tablespoons canola oil (divided)
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh dill (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
Shred zucchini with the larges holes of a box grater. Toss with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and let drain in a strainer or colander for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, shred the onion. Squeeze out excess liquid from onion and zucchini and mix together in a bowl. Add egg, flour, pepper, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and half the dill (if desired.)

Heat 1 Tablespoon in a large non-stick skillet on medium high heat. Drop zucchini mixture on the hot pan in 1/4 cup amounts, leaving at least 1 inch between the zucchini cakes. Press the cakes down to spread them out to 3 inches by 1/2 inch cakes and fry until golden or 4-5 minutes. Flip and fry the other side an additional 2-3 minutes.

Continue cooking the zucchini cakes in batches, adding an additional Tablespoon of oil as needed.

If desired, combine the sour cream, lemon juice and remaining dill as a topping for the zucchini cakes.
