More Zucchini to love!

Love the fabulous green hue! These are my zucchini pancakes (or fritters if you like). I had been craving these and made one recipe of Ina Garten's but hers called for baking powder which I didn't really want as it made them too much like a pancake and I wanted them to be more like a potato Latke (pancake, but not breakfasty). Anyway - this batch turned out perfectly. Served them for dinner with a store bought roasted chicken (yes, that is ok in my book) and a tomato, cuke, feta salad - perfection!

Zucchini Latkes (or pancakes or fritters) makes about 10-12

3 medium sized zucchini grated
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1/4 onion grated finely (I used a zester so it just melts)
1/4 cup flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
couple tablespoons olive oil

Grate the zucchini - I ended up with about 2 cups packed and then salt and put in a colander and let drain for about 15 min. Squeeze out all the liquid you can then place in a big bowl with everything else except the oil and mix with a spoon. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry in patties, maybe a heaping tablespoonful. Let cook until lightly browned then flip and brown on other side. Serve sprinkled with maldon salt - I think you could even do the latke thing and serve with applesauce and sour cream - or ketchup! Even good the next day warmed up...
