- In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. Scoop 1/3 cup of zucchini mixture into the hot oil, and flatten the mixture into a thin circle. Cook in batches, careful not to crowd in pan. Cook pancakes for 3 minutes on each side, until lightly browned and slightly crisp. In between each batch of pancakes, add 1 tablespoon of oil to the skillet and allow oil to heat up before adding batter.
