This is an excellent recipie. Even my son who does'nt like zuchinni said so. I did increase the salt in it. Also I used one zuchinni and one yellow squash. Easy, fast and delicious. Thanks.


I was not impressed with this at all. The *batter* never really formed on my zucchini. And it ended up coming out very bland tasting. I will stick to my traditional way of doing fried zucchini -- slice the zucchini, dip in flour, dip in eggwash, dip in flour again, salt and pepper and fry.


easy recipe. I double dipped the zucchini to give them a thicker coating. I let them sit in the covered bowl for 30 minutes, then quckly dunked them in milk, then back into the breading mix. I also added a little cayenne pepper to give it a little zing. Very good, though!!
