Recipe: Zucchini ‘Crab’ Cakes

by Jessie on August 22, 2013

Zucchini Cakes from This Beautiful Frugal Life

This is the number one searched for recipe on my food blog. I think it is because it is unusual and because anyone with a summer garden is always looking for ways to use their bumper crop in different ways


2 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup minced onion
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning (I used cajun seasoning)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil for frying


In a large bowl, combine zucchini, egg, and butter or margarine. Stir in seasoned crumbs, minced onion, and seasoning. Mix well.

Shape mixture into patties. Dredge in flour.

In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium high heat until hot. Fry patties in oil until golden brown on both sides.
