Zucchini Bites:

  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups  Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Garlic Aioli Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper


Zucchini Bites

  1. Slice the zucchini into 1/2" thick rounds.

  2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, salt, and ground black pepper. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. And pour the Panko into a third bowl. 

  3. Coat the zucchini with the flour mixture and then dip them into the beaten eggs. Cover them entirely with the Panko.

  4. In a large, heavy bottomed skillet, heat the canola oil over medium heat. Once heated, place zucchini bites flat in the pan (only one layer at a time), and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked all the way through. 

Garlic Aioli Sauce

  1. Combine mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl. 

  2. Serve zucchini bites hot with the sauce and enjoy!
