Recipe Ingredients for Zucchini Skillet Cakes

3 zucchini
2 egg
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup parsley
1 tbsp dried marjoram
2 T lemon zest
1/2 cup panko
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup capers
1 T olive oil
1 t salt
1 t pepper

Recipe Directions for Zucchini Skillet Cakes

  1. Grate zucchini ( you can also use summer squash)

  2. Sprinkle the grated zucchini with salt and place in a colander to drain for 15 minutes. Squeeze out as much liquid as you can from the grated zucchini using your hands or the back of a large wooden spoon. The more moisture you can remove, the easier it will be to keep the cakes together when frying.

  3. In a large bowl, mix together the beaten egg, garlic, parsley, marjoram, and lemon zest. Add the zucchini, breadcrumbs, and capers. Season.

  4. In a large non-stick skillet, heat some olive oil over med. heat. Spoon out desired amount of mixture and form into a round cake in the frying pan.

  5. Cook on the other side until firm. Keep warm on a plate in the oven until all the cakes are cooked.
