Ingredients

  • 12 oz zucchini
  • 1 medium egg (*)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (*)
  • 1/3 cup plain panko breadcrumbs
  • 1.5 tbsp parsley minced
  • 1.5 tbsp basil minced
  • 0.75 oz parmesan
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 cups canola oil for frying (*)
  • 3 tbsp Japanese mayonnaise

Instructions

  • Cut the zucchini into sticks.
  • In a bowl, mix panko breadcrumbs with salt, pepper, parmesan, parsley and basil.
  • Crack an egg into a separate bowl and whisk well.
  • Coat the zucchini sticks in flour first, then egg, and finally seasoned breadcrumbs. You can apply the bag method explained above to make it quicker.
  • Heat canola oil in a saucepan on medium heat. Drop a piece of breadcrumb in to see if it sizzles. If it does, slowly place the zucchini sticks in. Deep-fry them for 4 minutes or until golden, then place them on a cooling rack.
  • Serve with mayonnaise.

Notes

(*) Only part of these ingredients will end up in the final product and we have calculated nutritional values based on that amount. The whole amount is needed for the coating and cooking process, but what actually ends up being consumed is ½ a medium egg, 1 tbsp all-purpose flour and 3 tbsp canola oil. 
Unlike fries or chicken nuggets, zucchini fries will get soggy when left in the air for just 3 - 4 minutes. We recommend eating them very soon after being taken out of the pot for the best experience.
