My grandchildren loved breaded and fried (even sauteed) zucchini when they were small.  One of them still eats them but only this recipe.  This is much less expensive than buying the frozen ones, and of course, these are not processed.  I also sometimes bake these in the oven…just spray a baking sheet or oil well with olive oil, place the breaded zucchini on the sheet and spray again with cooking spray.


Whisk 1/2 cup each flour and cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, one cup water and one egg in a bowl.  Combine two cups breadcrumbs and 1/2 cup grated pecorino in another bowl.  Slice 2 large zucchini 1/4 inch thick; dip in the batter, then dredge in the breadcrumb mixture.  Fry in 1/2 inch of oil at 350 degrees until golden.  About 3 minutes per side.  Drain on paper towels and season with salt and pepper.  Serve with mayonnaise mixed with chopped parsley and lemon juice.
