These were really tasty... I used some Old bay that I was given to me in a swap as we don't have it here...great for the kids as they wouldn't even know it had vegies from the taste.. I served with a peri peri mayonnaise..thanks for posting!

These were MUCH tastier than I thought they would turn out. I didn't have time to let the grated zucchini sit in the sink, so I squeezed it in a dish towel. That, and not chopping my onions well enough I think made the cakes a little difficult to transport between the cutting board and frying pan. I mixed lots more flour in with each one to make them more of a pattie. They were REALLY tasty, just difficult to get into the frying pan.
