Recipe type: appetizer
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • zucchini sliced into ½-thick rounds (ends trimmed)
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (I use Panko)
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Yogurt dip:
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons freshly chopped dill
  1. To make the dip, in a small bowl combine yogurt, garlic, and dill. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place in refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. In a 9-inch frying pan, heat 2-inches of oil to 350f.
  3. Place flour, eggs, and bread crumbs into three separate, bowls; season bread crumbs with salt and pepper. Dip each zucchini round into flour, then egg, then bread crumbs. Working in batches, fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes, turning once. Drain on paper towels.
  4. While warm, season with salt. Serve with a yogurt dip, marinara sauce, or your favourite dressing.
  5. The Culinary Chase’s Note:
  6. For one less bowl to clean, place flour in a plastic baggie and toss zucchini rounds in. Completely cover and shake off any excess flour before dipping into the beaten egg. Enjoy!
