4 cups finely grated Russet potatoes (about 4 medium potatoes)
2 small-medium zucchini, finely grated
1 small onion, grated
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup matzo meal
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
freshly ground black pepper
In a large cast iron skillet or another heavy bottomed pan, heat about 1/4 inch oil.
Place the potato into a metal sieve over a large bowl. Press out any liquid. Pour out the liquid and place the potatoes in the bowl on top of the remaining starch. Use the same sieve to drain the zucchini and onion over the sink. Add to the potato. Stir in spices, and the matzo meal. Form into flat patties. If they will not hold their shape, stir in additional matzo meal until they do. Fry in hot oil, flipping halfway through, until just golden.
Drain on paper towel lined plates.
Yield: about 10 latkes, depending on size.
Note: Make sure you use the finer grater on a box grater, not the large, coarse side for best results.
