It is the end of the summer here in upper Michigan. The weather man is calling for high temperatures down into the 40’s for Thursday and Friday………….Burr. I decided to do one last recipe using summer garden vegetables, and decided on this Deep Fried Zucchini Sticks Recipe. I like serving Deep Fried Zucchini as a side dish with my fish fries during the summer; it just seems to go real well together.
I choose this recipe because some of the ingredients were a little different-like the Italian bread crumbs and the use of cream in place of milk. This is a very simple recipe that is easy to put together and tastes great. Give this Deep Fried Zucchini Sticks Recipe a try, and enjoy.
2 quarts oil for frying
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 zucchini, quartered
3/4 cup Italian-style dry bread crumbs
1. Heat the deep fryer or pan with oil to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Using a mixer in a medium bowl, mix the eggs, cream, pepper and salt.
3. Slice the zucchini into pieces 2 to 3 inches long-kind of like you would cut steak fries. Dip the pieces into the egg mixture, and then coat them with the bread crumbs.
4. Carefully place the battered pieces in the oil and fry 3 to 4 minutes, until brown and crispy. Drain fried pieces on a paper towel and serve.
