Zucchini Latkes


  • 3 medium zucchini, shredded (about 4-1/2 cups)

  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 small onion, grated

  • 1/4 cup matzo meal or dry bread crumbs

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

  • Oil for frying (I use regular olive oil, as little as possible)

  • Sour cream, optional

  1. In a large bowl, toss zucchini and 1/2 teaspoon salt; let stand for 10 minutes.

  2. Squeeze zucchini dry. I find it easier to use a cheesecloth, but you want the zucchini fairly dry!

  3. Stir in the eggs, onion, matzo meal, pepper and remaining salt.

  4. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.

  5. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls into oil; press lightly to flatten.

  6. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown (I like mine crisp).

  7. Serve with sour cream if desired.

  8. Yield: 16 latkes.
