Light on the budget and a pleasure to eat, mock crab cakes are a tastey treat. OK I just couldnt help myself, I had to go for the rhyme. They are really good. I dont know where the original idea came from but I got the recipe from my cousin. So glad she shared because we just love them. They are great as a side or put them on a bun and dress them up like a crab cake. They are delcious either way.
I make my own bay seasoning mix. If you make your own I suggest using a little less than the recipe calls for because it seems to be a bit more potent. Using Old Bay Seasoning really helps it along in the crab cake taste. Also, if you use plain bread crumbs please include a pinch of thyme, oregano and basil bcause this will also help the flavor along. You will not be disappointed with these!

Place shredded zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with salt, liberally. This will extract soem of the water out of the zucchini. Rinse, drain and squeeze. Mix all ingredients and let sit for about fifteen minutes. Form into patties and fry in olive oil, flip when golden.
