Tasty and Different Zucchini

Kathie Carr


This recipe was originally called "Mock Crab Cakes". And they do taste a bit like crab cakes because of the seasoning.

But, I think they're good and stand alone as a side dish and I just call them Tasty and Different Zucchini.

Its an unusual way to help use up all that summer zucchini.
