Air Fried Zucchini Fries

Air Fried Zucchini Fries


What You'll Need
  • 2 zucchini squash, trimmed into spears
  • salt
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan herb seasoning

Yogurt Pesto Dip

3 tablespoons plain yogurt

1 tablespoon basil pesto

What To Do
  1. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Cut each half into 3 long spears. Cut the spears in half to form zucchini fries.
  2. Sprinkle the zucchini fries with salt and place in a colander for at least 10 minutes to 2 hours, to draw out excess moisture.
  3. Blot zucchini dry with paper towels; then add to a large mixing bowl.
  4. Drizzle olive oil over the zucchini fries and stir until they are all well coated.
  5. Add Panko breadcrumbs, oil and seasoning to a plate, mix well.
  6. Roll the oiled zucchini into the panko, coating all sides and pressing firmly so the crumbs adhere.

IMPORTANT: Work in batches, do not overcrowd the Air Fryer basket.

  1. Air fry at 360ºF, until slightly crisp and golden brown, about 10 minutes, turning the spears over halfway through air frying.
  2. Transfer Zucchini Fries to a platter, sprinkle with salt. Combine yogurt and pesto in a small dish. Serve immediately.
