Zucchini-Feta Latkes

Zucchini-Feta Latkes

2-3 large to medium zucchini

Kosher salt

Black pepper

1 large egg, beaten

3 scallions, chopped thinly

1 cup flour

½  cup feta cheese

4 tbsp. bread crumbs

2 tbsp. fresh dill

3tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

In a medium bowl, grate the zucchinis, sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper liberally over them, and mix well. Cover bowl with plastic and let the zucchini soak for 10 minutes.

Using your hands, squeeze out excess liquid from the zucchini in a small batches and transfer to a separate mixing bowl. Once you have transferred all the zucchini, add the egg, scallions, flour, feta cheese, bread crumbs and fresh dill and mix well with a fork.

In a large frying skillet over medium-high heat, heat up the olive oil. Scoop out the zucchini cheese mixture by the heaping tablespoon and drop into the hot oil. Let zucchini latke fry on one side for 2-3 minutes and then flip over and fry again for another 2-3 minutes. Repeat in small batches and serve hot with a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt a garnish.

Tip: this is a very delicate latke and will fall apart if you flip too much . Zucchini’s retain moisture so less oil is needed to fry with.
