Fried Zucchini Recipe

Best Fried Zucchini recipe

Today I am sharing another family favorite – our Fried Zucchini Recipe. This one happens to be my favorite appetizer in the whole world! It’s a recipe we have at almost every meal {and I’m not exaggerating – we just love it THAT much}!! We make this at least once a month to go with our family Sunday meals and it’s always gone in minutes. You can serve this in different ways depending on how you cut the zucchini (discs or sticks), but however you make it, it’s sure to be a hit!

I also like to order this dish at restaurants and have decided that Cheesecake Factory and Claim Jumper have my favorite versions of this yummy dish. Have any of you tried this at these places??

  1. Thanks for the zucchini recipe! I've never tried it that way and about this time of year, when our garden is going crazy with zucchini, we'll try it any new way there is. :)Love the video, too. That's a good one!

  2. We have zucchini coming out our ears right now and this is totally going to be on the menu tonight! I made zucchini muffins this morning for breakfast and zucchini creme dessert last night – we love zucchini 🙂

    1. Wow, you must not be from the South! One of everyone’s all time favorite. It is so easy, so give it a try!

  3. Breaded fried zucchini is our favourite summer dinner. We only eat it once a year, but when we make it, it is all we have for dinner! We have ours with fresh garden tomatoes and lemon wedges.

  4. I ***LOVE*** this recipe! It is quick, easy, & delicious, too!! I make it as often as my family can stand! 🙂

  5. I’ll bet the zucchini get a nice thick coating with the double-dip method you’ve outlined here. I love both fried or grilled zucchini and panko, so this looks really good to me. I make a gluten-free panko by rolling over Rice Chex with a rolling pin.

  6. Hey – nice blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. Im currently using WordPress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

  8. Made this tonight using breadcrumbs because I didn’t have panko. Came out crispy and yummy! So easy too!I served it with ranch dip. My picky son liked it (even without the ranch dip). Thank you!

  9. I made these tonight and couldnt wait to see how they tasted. I was so disappointed and i ruined my zucchini from my garden. It was pretty but had no flavor at all, i ended up throwing them away. Oh well, thanks anyways. The one thing about this recipe is i tried something new and thats always a good thing. I am glad others enjoyed it so much.

  10. This was simple and delicious! I had large zucchini rounds (4″ round) and the breading stuck well and tasted amazing! I salted as I took out of pan to cool and made a spicy aoili for dipping.

  11. Does anyone have a recipe for zucchini squares? It was in a little cookbook long ago from bisquick.I can’t find it,and we love it. Thanks in advance.

  12. OMG, these were so easy to make and better than any restaurant that I’ve had these at. TY for this recipe because this is how I’m going to prepare my husband’s fried green tomatoes..

  13. I was searching for a fried zucchini recipe to make for the first time. This eggless recipe caught my eye. I made a small batch of only 4 discs, and literally had an egg waiting on the counter for the next batch. Well it promptly went back into the fridge, these are so light and delicious, I see why you eat them with every meal! I’m wondering if you use a similar recipe for eggplant? Thank you for sharing Lil Luna!!

  14. This is the best! All the others, Panko, etc even though crispy, cover up the flavor. I hope this will work on green tomatoes. AND I love that there are only 2 steps to coating vs. 3 steps, and it is really crispy.

  15. THESE ARE SO YUMMY I COULDN’T WAIT TO EAT THEM SO I ATE THEM STRAIGHT OUT OF THE FRYER AND NOW MY INTESTINES ARE BURNING BUT NOT AS BAD AS THAT TIME I ATE ALL THE GHOST PEPPERS OK. FIVE STARS. DELISH AF

  16. Hi there!
    Have you tried to convert this recipe to an air fryer? Just got one and the zucchini in the fridge is just waiting to be dressed in your recipe
    Thanks for the help

  17. I like how you are making some wise choices as to not frying vegetables .Look forward to seeing your other recipes, they all look delicious My husband would like it if I started cooking again.m With this I just might have to do that.

  18. I made these tonight using your method but used a box of Shake & Bake Parmesan & Herb. Awesome! My hubs thought they were great, too, and he’s not crazy about zucchini!

  19. I just made the fried zucchini recipe with my 10 year old daughter. They were so easy to make and so delicious! I highly recommend this. We added some parmsesan cheese after frying and loved it!
