Uncle Bill's Deep Fried Zucchini Strips

READY IN: 25mins




  • Wash and trim zucchini, (DO NOT PEEL).
  • Cut zucchini into about 2 1/2" long by 1/2" thick strips.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl, beat eggs and milk until fluffy.
  • In a plastic bag, add flour, seasoning salt and shake well.
  • In a separate plastic bag, add finely crushed saltine crackers.
  • Dip zucchini strips in egg mixture.
  • Drop into flour mixture and shake well to coat.
  • Dip again into egg mixture.
  • Drop into crushed crackers and shake well to coat.
  • Heat olive oil to 325 F to 350 F in a medium-size frying pan or use a deep fryer.
  • Drop coated zucchini (a few at a time) in the hot oil and cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes, turning once, (DO NOT OVERCOOK).
  • Zucchini should be crunchy.
  • Serve immediately with Bearnaise Sauce as a dip.
  • SAUCE FOR DIPPING: Prepare contents of Bearnaise sauce according to package directions or make your own.
  • NOTE: Instead of using plastic bags, place the flour mixture in a mixing bowl, and the crumbs in a separate bowl. This will not be quite as messy.
  • Also, Panko crumbs would be excellent or cornflake crumbs.
