Uhhhh yea!!! 
Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. You can serve with Ranch, but I used my favorite condiment in the whole world: Braum's Jalapeno Dip. (Seriously, get this stuff already!)

1 large zucchini, grated
1 large egg
1 c. panko bread crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp. Adobo spices
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, grated

Remove excess liquid from freshly grated zucchini by placing them between paper towels and squeezing. (REALLLLLY squeeze!)
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Mix thoroughly. 
Heat a large pan on medium, and spray with Pam. Shape spoonfuls of the zucchini batter into 2-in. (diameter) patties, and drop onto the sizzling pan. 
Cook each side for about a minute and a half, or until the outside is golden brown. Finish the cakes off in the oven. Stick them on a baking pan and broil them for 1-2 minutes. 
Serve immediately. 

Makes about 12-15 cakes.
