It looks delicious! If it wasn’t fried I’d be all over this. I gave up most fried foods in my early twenties. I splurge with French Fries once or twice a year. Maybe there’s a baked version? If so you two are the ones to find it and make it delicious! I hope you do cause I love zucchini!

Crispy Fried Zucchini with Tzatziki Sauce
One of my favorite summer vegetables is zucchini. Don’t be surprised if you see several zucchini dishes from me over the next few weeks. I have 5 zucchini plants producing right now and boy are they producing. This is one of my favorite dishes with zucchini. I served it as an appetizer on this occasion because it is so good. The tzatziki sauce with the fried zucchini creates an excellent flavor profile and is great for a meatless meal too.

  1. I use a small amount if olive oil and no breading with some sliced carrots for sweetness and Vidalia or purple onions, too. It is only so the zucchini won’t stick to the skillet. 🙂

    • This sounds good! Carrots are nature’s sweetener! I use in Spaghetti sauce and red sauces all the time. Vidalia Onions are seasonal here and some years I can’t find them at all! 😦

  2. Here’s a simple way to make this without frying! Follow the instructions for everything up to the ‘Heat oil in the skillet ‘- instead do this: Heat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit – lightly grease (with a small amount of olive oil) the rack of a broiler pan (here’s a link for an image of what it looks like in case you’re not sure – http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51hgmjK22aL.jpg – Bake 10 -15 minutes until top of zucchini is crispy! If you cut the zucchini thicker then I would suggest using a spatula to gently flip them over so the second side can become browned as well – If they’re thinner then it will be hard to flip them without breaking them. See! Not so hard! Let me know if this works for you 🙂

    • I forgot to put in there to place the breaded zucchini on the broiler pan rack and then pop in the oven !!!

  3. Looks yummy. We just had eggplant prepared in a similar way.

    • I love “eggplant parmigiano.” I will try it how the zucchini recipe is prepared. Good idea, Dan (or Dan’s wife).
