Fried Zucchini

I am going to try them tonight from an episode I saw on everyday Italian. Anyone try these? They are covered in parmagan cheese and Japanese bread crumbs

Yummy... Good stuff. Keep the breading light, let the flavor and juiciness of the zucchini come through.

I've made Giada's recipe and it's delicious. There's one adjustment that I would highly recommend and that's to dredge in either flour, corn starch or mochiko (rice flour) before dipping in eggs. That will help the crust to adhere during frying. For this recipe, I've used mochiko and corn starch but liked mochiko best since it is lighter than the corn starch.

I usually get my panko crust from the local grocery store in the "International" aisle. Youi can also find them in Asian food markets. Typically a store would carry mochiko if they carry panko.

Here's a couple recipes for it. I love the vinegar/garlic thing (garlic makes everything good).

Zucchini, Fried

My supermarket has it in the asian food aisle. If your market does not carry it, you can try an asian market.

All purpose flour should work fine. Make sure you shake off excess flour. Let us know how you like it. My family loved it.
