Zucchini Sticks


  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 1¾ cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • ½lemon (zest grated)
  • salt & freshly ground pepper
  • vegetable oil (for deep frying)
  • 3 Large zucchini


Preheat the oven to 95°C. Wash and dry the zucchini. Cut them into sticks about 7.5cm x 13mm.

Mix the bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, and lemon zest well in a shallow bowl. Beat the eggs in a second bowl. Spread the flour in a third bowl and season.

In batches, coat the zucchini in the flour, then the egg, and then the bread crumbs. Transfer to a wax paper-lined baking sheet.

Half-fill a deep frying pan with oil and heat over high heat to 170°C. In batches, add the zucchini and cook for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while frying the remaining zucchini. Serve hot.
