Zucchini Fries

(Adapted from Neely's Fried Zucchini)

2 zucchini, cut into French fry sticks

1/3 cup flour

1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs

1/4 cup grated Parmesan

2 Tbsp. chopped parsley

1 egg, beaten with a few Tbsp. of water

Salt and pepper

Oil for frying

1. On one plate, spread out the flour. In a wide bowl or pie plate, mix together the panko, Parmesan, parsley and salt and pepper. In a second wide bowl or pie plate, put the egg mixture.

2. Heat a heavy, deep pan on medium-high heat.  Add about 1/2 inch of oil to cover the bottom of the pan.

3. Dredge the zucchini fries in flour, then in egg, then in the panko mixture.

4. Carefully add a few at a time to the hot oil. Be sure not crowd them. When they are brown on the bottom, about 2-3 minutes, flip them over and cook the other side for another minute. Pull out and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle more salt on them while they are still hot, if necessary.

5. Serve with some ranch dressing.
