  1. COMBINE 1 cup flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, lemon pepper, onion powder, milk and egg in medium bowl. Blend until smooth. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  2. PLACE remaining 1/2 cup flour in plastic or paper bag. Cut zucchini into 1/4-inch diagonal slices. Rinse and pat dry. Shake slices in flour to coat.
  3. MELT shortening to a depth of 2 to 3 inches in a deep fryer or deep saucepan; heat to 375ºF. Dip floured zucchini in chilled batter. Let excess drip back into bowl.
  4. FRY a few at a time in hot oil 4 to 4 1/2 minutes, or until golden brown, turning several times. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately or keep warm in 175ºF oven. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving.
