      Pretty good. Didn't use fennel.

      I absolutely LOVED these little nibbles. (: So much, in fact, that I will be making them again today!!! Unfortunately, I couldn't find fennel seeds anywhere but a friend is going to help me out so I will post again when I've had them...I can't imagine them being any better than they already are. Made for PAC 2007. Thanks country girl kim, for sharing this terrific recipe.

      This was tasty and unique. I did not have any cornmeal, but did have seafood breading. I used that in place of both the cornmeal and the flour. The fennel added a nice flavor. I left out the cayenne and halved the recipe as I only had one zuke. This was enough for 2 people. I served this with chicken parmesan. Great!
