or other frying oil
salt & pepper
Cut zucchini into ¼-inch fries. Set on a paper towel to dry a bit while you prepare everything else.
Put your oil into a large stockpot and start heating. It needs to reach 350°F before you start frying anything.
Set out three shallow bowls or plates with a lip. On the first put the flour, on the second put the eggs (lightly beaten with a fork), and on the third put the breadcrumbs and parsley.
When the oil is to temperature, coat a handful of zucchini in flour, then egg, then breadcrumb. It's easiest if you keep one hand dry and one hand wet to minimize the mess.
Drop the coated zucchini into the oil. Let cook for about 60 seconds - when they turn a beautiful golden brown, they're done!
Remove from oil with a spider. Lay on a paper towel to soak up any excess oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Repeat until you've cooked all the zucchini!
