Zucchini Crab Cakes

Author: Mrs Happy Homemaker


  • 1.5 cups shredded & peeled zucchini
  • 8 oz crab any kind, or omit & add an extra cup of shredded zucchini
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning add 1 additional tbsp if omitting crab
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ½ cup vegetable oil for frying
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • In a large bowl, stir together the shredded zucchini, crab (if using), eggs, bread crumbs, onion, & Old Bay seasoning. Form into patties – at least as big as a golf ball & no bigger than a baseball. I usually go the baseball route. Dredge the crab cakes in the flour, & arrange in a skillet of hot oil, on medium-high heat. Fry patties in hot oil on each side until nicely browned. Remove to a paper towel lined plate, & sprinkle with salt and pepper while still hot.
