Directions

We had no idea this post was going to be as popular as it was and a lot of you are asking for the dip recipe. We put it together here: Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce

Start by washing off your zucchini. Then cut it into strips that are just the right size to grab and dip. There is nothing magic about the size or the shape, just make them easy to handle. They should look something like this:

After your zucchini is cut, sprinkle it with salt. Prepare three bowls. One with the flour, another with the eggs, beaten, and the third with the panko breadcrumbs. Set them up something like this so that you can easily make your fries.

First, drag the stick through the flour. This helps the egg stick to the zucchini strip.

After coating the entire zucchini stick, you will dip it into the egg.

The last step before frying the zucchini is to coat it with the panko crust. Here, you will want to let the egg drip off so that it is just wet, not dripping. Too much egg will keep the crust from sticking well.

Set the breaded zucchini fries aside on a plate while you heat up the oil in a large frying pan.

When the oil is hot, gently place the zucchini in the oil. They may sink, but as they cook they tend to rise to the surface. Cook them until they are golden brown.

The best way to pull the fried zucchini fries out of the pan is with a slotted spoon so that they can be gently moved. Let them rest on paper towels while the rest of the grease drips off of them.
