Breaded zucchini is really simple and really tasty.
You will need a large frying pan.
You will need a large shallow container with a tight fitting lid, like tupperware or rubbermaid.
You will also need a bowl for mixing.
2 small or 1 medium-small zucchini
2 Tablespoons water
2 teaspoons seasoning salt
1 cup flour
1/4 to 1/2 cup butter, for frying
Beat the egg, water, and seasoning salt in a bowl large enough to fit the sliced zucchini into.
Wash and trim ends off the zucchini. Slice into 1/4"( or a little less) rounds.
Add the zucchini to the egg mixture and stir well.
Let the zucchini marinate in the egg mixture for 15 to 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Put the flour into the large, shallow container.
One by one toss the zucchini slices into the flour.
Cover the container and shake well to coat the zucchini with flour.
You may need to do this in batches if you don't have a large enough container to spread the zucchini out.
Heat a large frying pan and add 1/4 cup butter.
Add the zucchini slices and fry until golden brown. Turn over and fry the other side.
Drain on paper towels.
You may need to fry in batches and you may end up needing to use more butter.
Serves 3 to 4 people.
Soaking the zucchini in the seasoned egg mixture imparts more flavor to the zucchini than just dipping it into the mixture and than right into the flour.
