Fried Zucchini "Cookies"

We picked our first zucchini from our garden last night! I made some yummy fried zucchini “cookies” as my children called them. You can also cut them into spears and dip them in marinara sauce or your favorite dip!

1 zucchini
1 egg
1 c. Plain Panko bread crumbs
Zest from ½ lemon
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
Salt & pepper
Vegetable oil for frying
Parmesan cheese

On a plate sprinkle some Panko bread crumbs (the amount depends on how large your zucchini is, approx. 1 c.), lemon zest, about 1 tsp. Italian seasoning and some salt and pepper. Mix it all up. On another plate, beat one egg with 1 Tbsp. water. Heat about ¼ inch oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Slice the zucchini however you wish – spears or “cookies” and dip in the egg wash and then into the bread crumbs. Place in hot oil and fry until golden brown (about 2-3 min.) and flip. When they are done, place on a plate lined with paper towel. Grate fresh parmesan on the hot zucchini. Yummy!
