Adapted from Everyday Foods
1 pound (about 2 medium) zucchini, coarsely grated
Ground black pepper
2 scallions, finely chopped
1/2 cup flour
Sour cream or yogurt
Salt the grated zucchini with about 1 teaspoon of salt. Let rest about 10 minutes to allow salt to draw out moisture from the zucchini. Squeeze zucchini using a ricer or by hand.
Whisk egg in medium bowl. Add zucchini, scallions, flour, and pepper to taste. Mix well.
Heat olive oil in saute pan over medium heat. Scoop mounds of batter (about 2 tablespoons each) into pan, pressing down lightly to flatten with spatula. Saute about 4-6 minutes on each side, till golden brown. Remove to paper towel covered plate to drain excess oil.
Salt and serve while hot, garnishing with sour cream or yogurt if desired.
