Deep-Fried Zucchini Sticks


Yes, deep frying it takes away some of the health benefits, but if you’ve got a bunch of zucchini you can’t get your family to eat, this is your recipe! Even the staunchest non vegetable eater I know loves these crispy coated bites of hot zucchini goodness.

Recipe Summary



Use fresh uncooked zucchini - do not parboil.

Completely submerge whole zucchini in salted ice water for 3-4 minutes to remove wax from the skin. If the wax is not removed, the breading will not stick.

Cut whole zucchini into half widthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into 6 equal pieces (sticks).

Deep fry eight, eight 1-ounce Breaded Zucchini sticks for 4-5 minutes at 350° or until golden brown.

Standard Breading

Bread the zucchini sticks with the standard breading procedure:

Zucchini may be stored under refrigeration until needed.

To make the Egg wash, combine 1 egg with 1/2 cup of Buttermilk and whisk together.
