Garden Week: Fried Zucchini

This is the best fried zucchini hands down.

Fried Zucchini

1 3/4 c parmesan
1 1/2 c panko bread crumbs
3/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
3 medium zucchini peeled, and cut into rings or strips

Pour enough oil into a large frying pan to reach a depth of 2 inchs (or use a deep fat fryer). Heat oil over med heat to 350 degrees.

Stir 1 1/2 cups parmesan, the panko and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk the eggs in another bowl. Working in batches dip the zucchini in the eggs, let excess drip, and then coat the zucchini in the panko mixture, patting to adhere completly.

When oil is hot, fry the zucchini in batches until they are golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
