Crispy Summer Squash Pancakes

·        2 medium yellow squash, grated on the medium holes of a box grater and squeezed dry
·        2 scallions, thinly sliced
·        1 jalapeño, thinly sliced
·        1 large egg, beaten
·        1/2 cup all-purpose flour
·        2 teaspoons baking powder
·        Kosher salt
·        Pepper
·        6 tablespoons canola oil
·        Lemon wedges and sour cream, for serving

1.    In a medium bowl, combine the squash with the scallions, jalapeño, egg, flour and baking powder and season with salt and pepper. Mix gently just to combine.
2.    In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Spoon 3 heaping 1/3-cup mounds of the batter into the skillet and press lightly to flatten them. Cook over moderate heat until golden, about 
3 minutes. Flip the pancakes, add 1 tablespoon of the oil 
and cook until golden and crisp, 
2 minutes longer. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining oil and batter. Serve the pancakes hot with lemon wedges and sour cream.

Serve for breakfast with cream cheese, cucumbers and smoked salmon or under a runny, fried egg!
