    Default Maggiano's Crispy Fried Zucchini

    Maggiano's Crispy Fried Zucchini THERE ISN'T A LOT OF SEASONING...SO SEASON AS YOU WISH
    Crispy Fried Zucchini

    Main Recipe
    Ingredients:
    1) Zucchini - Washed and stems removed. Cut zucchini into 6 1/2" length and
    1/4" wide
    2) Batter (see recipe below)

    Preparation:
    1) Dip each individual slice of zucchini in batter and allow batter to briefly drip off
    zucchini. Dip zucchini into Japanese breadcrumbs pressing into crumbs to coat
    well.
    2) Carefully place onto a parchment lined sheet tray sprinkled with Japanese crumbs.
    Place zucchini side by side. Do not overlap.
    3) You can put a second sheet of parchment on top and repeat...creating a second
    layer. Do not stack higher than two layers.
    4) Fry the breaded zucchini strips in a 350 degree fryer until crisp and golden. Drain
    on a napkin lined half sheet tray to absorb grease.
    5) Sprinkle lightly with kosher salt and (optional) 1 tbs. of cheese of choice.
    6) Place zucchini on napkin lined sandwich plate...off-setting strips to create some
    height.
    7) It can be served with a side cup of 4 oz. Lemon Aioli (see below) and 1/2 Lemon. You can also
    sprinkle with 1/2 tbs. chopped parsley.

    The Batter
    Ingredients:
    1) 1/2 quart of seasoned Flour
    2) 1/2 quart of Corn Starch
    3) 2 1/2 cups Soda Water
    4) Salt and Pepper mix (1/2 tbs. and 1/4 tsp.)
    5) Japanese Breadcrumbs

    Preparation:
    1) Measure soda water into a stainless steel mixing bowl.
    2) Combine seasoned flour with cornstarch and salt and add to soda water 1 cup
    at at time...incorporate with a whisk.
    3) Do not overmix batter. (Batter should be the consistency of thin pancake batter.)

    CINDY.....Uncle Pheds site said no one can find it, but s***ested these to Lemon Aioli Recipe

    cup mayonnaise (Kraft or Hellman's works best. No Miracle Whip - it's too sweet!)
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (or 2 tbsp dried parsley)
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne
    1/4 teaspoon dry mustard(plus a little extra as desired)
    1 tablespoon olive oil (optional to thin sauce)

    Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, salt, pepper, cayenne and mustard with a whisk.
    Let chill for an hour or so to soak up flavors of seasoning.
    Add olive oil as desired to thin sauce if desired.
    ---------------------------------------------
