Ingredients

3 medium zucchini, shredded
1-1/2 cups bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1-1/2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 small green or red pepper, finely chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

Shred the zucchini into a colander over a bowl. Let it drain for 30 to 45 minutes. Press down to remove excess water and pat dry with a paper towel.

In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini, bread crumbs, eggs, mayonnaise, Old Bay, mustard, onion, green pepper, and salt and black pepper.

Using an ice cream scoop, place a portion of the mixture in your hand and form into a ball. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. Press down lightly on the balls to form cakes.

Pour the olive oil into a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Gently transfer the cakes to the skillet using a spatula. Turn every minute until they are golden brown and crispy. Add more olive oil if the pan gets dry.

Serve hot with tartar sauce.

Yield: 

Makes about 20 cakes.
