To make the lemon dill sauce, whisk all ingredients in a small saucepan until warmed and smooth. Set aside; keep warm.

To make the potato zucchini cakes, place potato in fine mesh sieve. Squeeze potato to remove excess moisture. Place on paper towel; pat dry. Put into a large bowl. Add zucchini, eggs, salt, pepper and flour; mix well.
