My husband likes to minimize his carbs, but we share a love of fried zucchini. He came up with this recipe and it’s a favorite when we’re watching sporting events or just a Friday night when we don’t feel like going out. He usually serves it as an appetizer before spicy chicken wings.

First, slice the zucchini into spears, cutting the entire length of the vegetable. Then, cut the long spears in half. I like to get the spears as thin as possible – so that the zucchini sticks maximize their value as a fried cheese delivery system! ;)

Next, lightly beat 2 eggs (for the egg wash).

In a separate bowl, combine about 1/2 cup of Parmesan Cheese ( we use basic Kraft), a pinch of salt, and a pinch of paprika.

Heat about a half an inch of oil in a small sauce pan. (A sauce pan is recommended to minimize splatters.)

Working in batches of about 6-8 zucchini spears, toss them in the egg mixture, then dredge them in the parmesan mixture to coat.

Gently place the coated spears into the oil and cook for about a minute on each side.

Drain on paper towels, and serve with your favorite dip. When I come up with a low carb dip, I’ll post that, too! (Until then, all-American Ranch Dressing will do!)
