zucchini sticks

Zucchini is in the markets, at the farm stands, and ready to pick. Fried Zucchini sticks are easy to make and a delicious way to eat this delightful vegetable.

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients

  • 1 small to medium sized zucchini
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • vegetable oil

Directions

  • Slice zucchini into 2-2 1/2 inch long cylinders. Cut each cylinder in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 4-5 sticks (depending on thickness of zucchini). You want them to be an easy size to bite.
  • Place your flour, egg and panko in three separate bowls. Mix the egg well with a fork. Add some sea salt and pepper to the panko.
  • Dip each zucchini stick in the flour, then the egg, then the panko and place on a plate. Once all sticks have been dipped, refrigerate about half an hour.
  • Five minutes before you’re ready to cook, heat an inch of vegetable oil in a large pot. Using a slotted spoon, carefully lower the zucchini sticks into the hot oil. Fry for about 5 minutes or until golden and crispy.
  • Serve with ranch dressing, tomato sauce or your dipping sauce.  Be careful as they will be hot!
