Zucchini "Crab" Cake

I found this recipe as a vegetarian alternative to crab cakes.  I've never been a big crab cake fan, I'm actually not even sure I've ever tried one.  So I don't know how close they come to actual crab cakes, but I do know that they are quite good just as they are.  Even my hubby likes them & is requesting me to make more of them & that's saying a lot, LOL.

Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

2 1/2 Cups grated zucchini
1 egg, beaten
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 Cup bread crumbs
1/4 Cup minced onion
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

*combine zucchini, egg, & butter
*mix in bread crumbs, seasoning, & onions
*shape into patties
*you can dredge these in flour & pan fry OR you can bake them

I chose to bake them on a lightly oiled baking sheet at 400 for 15 minutes on each side

I don't like crab cakes either, but I love zucchini cakes! I usually do mine with a mix of grated zucchini and potato. I'm definitely going to add the Old Bay you mentioned here. Sounds great.
