3 cups coarsely grated zucchini

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup fresh breadcrumbs (from a baguette) I used panko crumbs

1 egg

2 green onions, thinly sliced

1/4 c diced red bell pepper

1 1/2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp mayonnaise or plain yogurt

1/8 tsp red pepper flakes

2 Tbsp vegetable oil, for frying

1 tsp butter


Place grated zucchini in a colander; sprinkle lightly with salt and let stand 30 minutes. Press with paper towels to remove as much liquid as possible. Zucchini should be fairly dry, and you should have about 2 cups. Place zucchini and remaining ingredients (except oil & butter) in a bowl. Mix well. Form into 8 patties the size of crab cakes. Chill

Heat oil & butter in a skillet.

Add patties to skillet and cook on both sides until browned. Drain on paper towels.
