Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Oil two baking pans or line with parchment paper. Rinse and dry the zucchini well.
Slice the zucchini into a fry shape. Keep the size of the pieces of zucchini as even as possible. Place the zucchini slices on a clean towel and dry all sides well.
In one small bowl mix together the parmesan cheese, panko, garlic, onion powder, paprika, oregano, parsley and salt. In a second small bowl crack the two eggs and whisk with a fork until combined. In a third bowl add the flour.
Line up the bowls, first the flour then the egg and lastly the panko and herb mixture. Working in small batches, dip each piece of zucchini into first the flour, then the egg then lastly the panko and herb mixture. Press the panko gently into the zucchini as needed so that it sticks well.
Coat all of the zucchini, lining them up on the pan. Space them out so there is a little space between each piece. Spray lightly with cooking oil.
Bake for 10 minutes. Remove and flip all of the zucchini. Spritz lightly again with a little cooking oil, then bake for an additional 10 minutes until golden brown.
Serve immediately with your favorite dip (we like marinara sauce), sprinkle with fresh parsley and enjoy!
How To Slice The Zucchini Into Fry Shapes -Start by slicing the ends off the zucchini, then slicing it in half down the middle. Slice each piece in half the long way so you now have four pieces the same size. Slice each piece of zucchini into four long pieces. Repeat for each zucchini, trying to keep the slices close to the same size.
How To Add The Crumb Coating Without It Becoming Too Clumpy- When you are breading the zucchini it can be helpful to use your left hand for the flour and egg step, and use only your right hand for the breading. This helps keep the panko from getting as clumpy as fast, and from sticking to your fingers as much. Have a towel nearby to wipe the breading from your fingers as needed.
Use A Fork To Make Breading Easier- A fork can also be used to remove the zucchini from the panko so that less breading sticks to your fingers.
Reheating Tips- These zucchini fries do reheat, but don’t reheat them in the microwave or they will become super mushy. To reheat use an oven, toaster oven or air fryer to keep them crispy on the outside.
