15 Delicious Fried Zucchini Recipes

If your garden is producing more zucchini than you can eat, I have some good news for you. Fried zucchini is absolutely divine! Oh…. the flavor! One of my favorite ways to eat this overproductive vegetable. I just picked 3 more golden zucchini from the garden today and I’m in the mood for crispy fried zucchini. So, I went on a hunt for fried zucchini recipes to find a new favorite. I’m sharing my findings with you, so you can enjoy them too!

If you are berried in zucchini, you might want to freeze some of your zucchini or try one or more of these baked zucchini recipes.

Got loads of zukes? Here’s what to do with too much zucchini.

Tools you’ll need for fried zucchini recipes

You can always use what you have on hand in your kitchen drawers: a plain old knife and an old frying pan, etc.

But if you plant zucchini every year, and will be making all these fried zucchini recipes, you might as well make your life easier. Here are the tools that will make your life easiest when cooking zucchini.

  • mandoline slicer – use this for perfectly sliced zucchini “coins” for frying. The mandoline slicer is also helpful for making zucchini strips (for making delicious appetizers).
  • fryer – I prefer a good air fryer (like this one) to make the fries healthier
  • of course, if you’d just rather fry than the classic way, buy a good frying pan (this one has over 6500 great reviews).
  • get a spiralizer: I promise it’ll pay you back 10 times or more. Curly zucchini fries anyone? YUM!
  • food processor – for shredding your zucchini when you make fritter. I’ve had mine for several years and it saved my muscles many times. They no longer sell the model I have, but this one is very similar.

That’s about it. You’re now ready to make fried zucchini chips, fritters, and curly fries. If you haven’t tried these, you must.

Drool Worthy Fried Zucchini Recipes

Please don't let the abundance of zucchini from your garden turn you off to this delicious vegetable. I promise you, once you try fried zucchini, you'll want more!

I hope you found at least a few fried zucchini recipes you wish to try. I’m definitely going to make some zucchini fritters next time I pick zukes from the garden (probably tomorrow, LOL).
