Panko Encrusted Fried Zucchini

Again, I've been finding all sorts of zucchini recipes and have been wanting to try them all!  Tonight for dinner we gave these a try with some pasta, and they were so yummy!  I definitely reccomend putting the salt/pepper/and parmesan cheese on after frying.  Nothing like deep frying something that is supposed to be healthy for you!  

Panko-Encrusted Fried Zucchini

Vegetable oil, for frying
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 to 3 large zucchini cut into 1/4 to 1/2-inch rounds
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup water
Parmesan cheese
ranch dressing or marinara/spaghetti sauce

Measure flour into a pie plate. In another pie plate combine panko and salt and pepper, to taste. In a third plate add eggs and water. Dredge the zucchini in the flour, followed by the egg wash and finally in the panko. Press crumbs into the zucchini rounds.

Working in batches, place the breaded zucchini slices in the hot oil and fry until golden brown , 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined sheet tray and immediately season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with Parmesan if you like. The serve with ranch dressing or marinara/spaghetti sauce.
