Kira's Delicious Zucchini Latkes

I adapted this great recipe from someone on the GAPS yahoogroup. They're slightly softer than potato pancakes, but really tasty.

3 medium-large size zucchinis or yellow squash (3 lbs. total)
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 - 1/2 onion grated (depending on your taste). Or you can use 1 shallot.
2 eggs, well beaten
fresh ground pepper
lard or duck fat

Grate up the zucchinis on the largest shredding side of a box grater. Add salt, stir well, and let sit for 10 minutes.

Discard as much liquid as you can by squeezing fistfuls of zucchini. Add the grated onion, pepper to taste, and eggs to the squeezed-out zucchini.

Heat a cast iron pan on medium to medium-high heat, and add a good thick (1/4-inch) layer of lard.

Use about 1-2 tablespoons of the mixture for each pancake, and flatten in the pan once they're all sizzling. You can get about 6 little latkes per batch if you have a large pan.
