Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
Toss the salt in with the shredded zucchini and potatoes. Let sit for 10 minutes.

Place the shredded zucchini and potatoes in the middle of a paper towel and squeeze out any liquid. Repeat in a new paper towel if needed.

Spread out the veggie and sprinkle the flour on them.

Using a large skillet over medium-high heat, place the portions in the pan and flatten to form a patty. You can also do a few at a time if you don't have a large enough skillet.


Cook each patty until golden brown on each side. Place the finished ones on a baking pan in the oven to keep warm until you're ready to serve them.
