3 cups coarsely grated zucchini
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs (from a baguette) I used panko crumbs
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.
