- Squeeze as much liquid as you can from potatoes, then place on a paper towel-lined baking sheet and cover with paper towels. Press down. In a large bowl, whisk egg with flour, and salt. Add potatoes and onion. Stir to evenly mix.
- Pour enough oil into a large, deep frying pan (not non-stick) to come about 1/4 in. up the side, then set over medium-high. Measure heaping 1 tbsp of potato mixture and carefully turn into pan. Flatten slightly using a fork or spatula. Repeat, adding more latkes in pan without crowding. Fry until golden, 2 to 3 min per side. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining potato mixture.
