Panko Fried Zucchini Crisps with Garlic Aioli Dip

3 Aug

Pinterest… you always trouble me. I am totally guilty for pinning and bookmarking this one. These are just so crispy and juicy and perfect. I had to try these for myself. I love zucchini (its probably one of my favorite veggies) and because these are all pantry items this recipe is so easy, and can be made on a whim!

Panko Fried Zucchini Crisps with Garlic Aioli Dip
*Adapted from Natasha’s Kitchen

Ingredients
2 large green zucchini, cut into 1/2″ thick rounds
1 cup of all purpose flour seasoned with 2 tsp salt and 1/2 tbsp black pepper
2 eggs, beaten for egg wash
2 cups of panko bread crumbs
1/4″ of canola oil in pan
For Garlic Aioli: mix 1/3 cup mayo, 1 pressed garlic clove, 1/2 tbsp lemon juice, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper

Instructions
In an assembly line have zucchini slices, eggs, flour, and panko ready. Dredge zucchini rounds in flour, then dip floured zucchini in the beaten egg, then panko bread crumbs. Heat a large, non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add about ¼” oil (enough to generously cover the bottom). Once the oil is hot, add breaded zucchini chips and saute about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown on each side. If browning too quickly, reduce heat. Once zucchini are done frying, transfer them to a bowl or plate lined with paper towels and serve them warm with the prepared aioli sauce. YUM!!!! Seriously guys. Thanks Natasha!
