“We are getting ready to have TONS of zucchini soon, so was looking up recipes. Found this on The Pioneer Woman Cooks site and it looks SO tasty! I have not yet tried these. Someone on that site suggested giving them a light flour coating before frying, but I will try them without first. Let me know if anyone tries this before I get to it!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a julienne peeler or mandoline, cut the zucchini into VERY thin pasta-like strips.
  2. Discard the center core with the seeds.
  3. Blot with paper towel to remove as much moisture as possible.
  4. Heat 3 inches of oil in a deep fryer to 375.
  5. Add the zucchini strands without over filling the pan.
  6. Turn when the zucchini strands are golden brown. Brown the other side; remove and drain on paper towel.
  7. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve at once.
