Fried Zucchini

There is nothing like fried zucchini... its salty, its garlic-y it has a nice crunch when you bite into it releasing its yummy goodness beneath the breading..  I've tried a lot of recipes that have left me wanting something more after making them, not in a good way.  These, however left me wanting more! The two small zucchini's I chose however used a LOT more breading than any of the recipes I scanned through, so I've doubled the breading recipe so that it should cover 2 thinly sliced zucchini's.


Fried Zucchini

Ingredients:
oil (for frying)
1 Tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour
4 Tbsp plain dried bread crumbs
1 Tbsp grated reduced -fat parmesan cheese
2 tsp finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 large egg whites
2 small zucchinis, cut into 1/8 - inch rounds

Directions:
  1. In a frying pan heat 1 inch of oil on medium until shimering.
    Spoon the flour into a medium shallow bowl. Put the bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper in a medium resealable plastic bag.
  2. Use a fork to beat the egg white in a small bowl until bubbly.
  3. Dip both sides of one zucchini round in the flour, and then roll it to coat it completely. Shake off any excess and dip it in the egg to cover it. Let any excess drip off, and then drop the round into the crumb bag and shake gently to coat it.  Repeat with each round, and then place them in a single layer, not touching, in pan.
  4. Fry in pan for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown on each side.
  5. Serve with dip of your choice.
