Fried Zucchini

About this recipe

These guys are also good cold, stuffed into fresh bread as part of a sandwich (or as the sandwich—if you’re a real Italian). Throw in a couple peaches, some leftover chicken, and a fresh cucumber with a knife and you’re ready for the job site.


Wash zucchinis and cut off ends. Slice into ¼ inch thin wafers (or wedges) and shake in bag with:

  • flour,
  • salt,
  • pepper,
  • garlic powder.

Dip in a beaten egg mixture seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Fry in canola or vegetable oil; let drain on paper towels. Salt before serving.


  • You can roll them in bread crumbs after the egg.
    Though it's not as good, you could also just make an egg-flour batter and add an herb (e.g., thyme). And you can do the same thing with cauliflower. Just parboil the florets a few minutes before shaking.
