Poor Man Crab Cakes Made with Zucchini Recipe

Back in the good old days they used to call this recipe Poor Man Crab Cakes but in modern times it is called Zucchini Cakes...whatever you want to call them...they are super delicious and easy to prepare. This recipe will make 4-5 cakes, depending on the size that you make them.

Poor Man Crab Cakes Recipe (Zucchini Cakes)

2 cups finely shredded fresh zucchini
2 large eggs, well beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 tbsp. butter, softened
1/2 tbsp. Old Bay seasoning
1/2 tbsp. parsley flakes

In a large bowl, combine together all of the above ingredients, except for the 1/4 cup of additional bread crumbs. Cover bowl and refrigerate for 4-6 hours. Remove from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes. Shape mixture into cakes with your hands. Roll each cake into the additional 1/4 cup of bread crumbs.

Place cakes into a deep fryer or a large skillet with hot vegetable oil and fry until done (golden brown on the outside). Remove and serve immediately. You can garnish them with whatever you like.
