Preparation

In colander, toss zucchini with salt ; let stand for 20 minutes. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible; transfer zucchini to bowl. Stir in green onions, eggs, buttermilk and oil; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking soda and pepper. Pour zucchini mixture over top; stir just until blended.

In large nonstick skillet, heat half of the butter over medium heat. Using heaping 2 tbsp (25 mL) batter for each and remaining butter as necessary, fry pancakes, flattening slightly with back of spoon, until bottoms are golden, about 2 minutes.

Turn and fry until edges are golden, about 2 minutes. Place on paper towel?lined baking sheet or plate. (Make-ahead: Let cool and stack between waxed paper; refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days. Reheat on baking sheet in 325°F/160°C oven, about 8 minutes.)
