Fried Zucchini Cakes

posted on: Friday, August 8, 2008

We had a nice picnic at the Santa Cruz board walk while we watched this...

the Amazing Chinese Acrobats!!!

and ate a lot of these deliciously fried things.

  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup manioc (yucca) flour
  • 1/2 cup Monterey jack cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Place the grated zucchini in a kitchen towel and squeeze. Try to get as much of the water out as possible.
  2. Place the zucchini in a medium bowl.
  3. Put all the other ingredients in the bowl and mix with your hands.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and any other spices that you like.
  5. In a medium sized skillet place olive oil and let it get hot.
  6. Once the oil is hot mold the cakes in you hands so that it is about 1 inch thick and 3 inches wide.
  7. fry those babies up about 4-5 minutes on each side.
This recipe is a variation of the Zucchini cakes from The Pioneer Woman Cooks. She uses breadcrumbs instead of manioc flour and she gives A LOT more detail. Go check her out.
