Easy Fried Zucchini

This Fried Zucchini is absolutely delicious.  I really can’t say enough about it because it’s so easy to make and the taste is amazing, with or without dipping sauce.  I got the idea, to make it this way, several years ago.  One of my favorite Italian chains serves an appetizer very similar to this one and I liked it so much I figured I’d put together my own recipe.  So this is what I came up with.

My Fried Zucchini Secret

The trick, to this Fried Zucchini recipe, is to keep the breading on while you’re frying.  So, be gentle flipping each peace over.  You also need to be sure to cook the Zucchini slices all the way through so that they are tender on the inside yet crispy on the outside.  This means you need to fry them at a medium low temperature but no lower than 325 degrees Fahrenheit.  If you do this, you’re Fried Zucchini will turn out great!

FYI: You can use this exact same recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes! 😉

 Fried Zucchini Ingredients:

1 Zucchini, sliced
2 eggs
1/2 cup Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Seasoned Bread Crumbs

Cut the Zucchini into 1/4 inch slices. Dip each slice into the salted flour, then the egg wash and then the seasoned bread crumbs.  Fry with 1/8 inch of oil in the bottom of a pan, set on Medium Low, for 1 to 2 minutes per side.  Dab on paper towels and serve the Fried Zucchini with Marinara and Ranch Dressing or dip.
