Shiksa Latkes

Makes 8-10 medium latkes

  • 2 zucchini, ends removed and grated
  • 1/2 sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup matzo meal
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • salt and pepper
  • vegetable oil

1.  Working in batches, wrap grated zucchini in a paper towel and squeeze out excess water.  Repeat if necessary.  

2.  In a large bowl, mix together zucchini, onion, matzo meal, and egg using a spoon.  Season with salt and pepper.  

3.  Heat 1/4 cup vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Working in batches, spoon about 2 tablespoons of zucchini mixture into your hand.  Gently pat flat, but not completely flat.  Add to skillet and reduce heat to medium.  Fry latkes 2-4 minutes per side.  Transfer to paper towels to drain off excess oil.  Add more oil to the skillet if necessary and repeat with the rest of the zucchini mixture.
