Zucchini Fritter Cakes

Mommy Bee made something yummy at the bee hive last evening.  A recipe inspired by a love of crab cakes served on salad, but when you have two beautiful zucchinis waiting to be cooked in a regal way, well, you have to oblige.

So, here is a recipe modified for our Mommy Message friends.  Serve the fritter on top of a bed of greens tossed with olive oil and lime juice and a pinch of salt. Scrumptious!

Zucchini Fritter Cakes

2 medium sized zucchinis
1 cup of bread crumbs
1 cup of grated parmesan
1 egg
Extra Virgin Olive Oil for cooking
2 cloves of garlic
Salt to taste

Mince cloves of garlic
Grate zucchinis (Press with paper towel to remove excess moisture)
In a bowl mix garlic & zucchini
Add 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 1 cup of parmesan, & 1 egg, & salt to taste to zucchini mixture
Mix with fork thoroughly

Use tablespoon to dish out rounded cake
Roll cakes in 1/2 cup of remaining bread crumbs on a plate

Heat skillet with Olive Oil, use enough to cover bottom of pan
Make sure Olive Oil is plenty hot
Place small zucchini cake into pan and press down slightly
