Zucchini Fries

The zucchini is a vegetable I did not eat very much growing up. Not quite sure why but I do know my grandmother didn’t like cooking things she couldn’t pronounce (I take that back, she made Chicken Tetrazzini a few times ). I came up with this recipe when I was frying chicken and felt guilty because I wasn’t eating a vegetable. There was a lonely zucchini sitting in the fridge and I decided to cook it the same way I was cooking the chicken.

Instructions

  1. 1Mix flour and seasoning in large try or plate and set aside . Pour hot sauce in separate bowl and set aside.
  2. 2Peel skin from zucchini and cut into shape of french fries (size at your discretion).
  3. 3Add zucchini fries to bowl of hot sauce, mix and let sit for a few minutes.
  4. 4Meanwhile pour vegetable oil into frying pan (enough to just cover fries) and heat to 375 degrees. If you don’t have a thermometer drop one test fry to oil, the oil is hot enough with the fry comes to a good sizzle
  5. 5Take a batch of fries from hot sauce and dredge in flour mixture.
  6. 6Add fries to oil and cook in batches. Do not crowd the pan as this will lower your oil too much and cause the zucchini to be soggy.
  7. 7When fries are golden brown, remove from oil and allow to drain on paper towel. Serve with hot sauce or ranch for dipping.
