  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 1 3/4cups finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2cups panko(Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 3/4teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • vegetable oilfor frying
  1. Cut the zucchini into 3-inch by 1/2-inch strips.
  2. In a medium bowl, thoroughly combine the cheese, breadcrumbs, and salt.
  3. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl.
  4. Working in batches of around 4 to 5 zucchini sticks, dip them in the beaten eggs and coat them completely, letting any excess egg drip back into the bowl.
  5. Roll the egg-coated sticks in the Panko mixture, patting well to ensure they are completely covered.
  6. Place the breaded zucchini in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
  7. Pour enough oil into a large frying pan so that the oil is at least 2-inches deep. Heat over medium heat until the oil is hot.
  8. Add the zucchini sticks to the hot oil in batches, making sure to not overcrowd the pan. Fry them until they turn golden, approximately 3 minutes.
  9. Transfer the zucchini fries to a large plate or baking sheet lined with paper towels to get rid of any excess oil. Serve with a dipping sauce of your choice.
