Zucchini Parmesan

I wanted to see how our smoked oil could be used in the most classic American way: frying! Now don’t get me wrong, I advocate healthy eating. Luckily for us, olive oil is very healthy! So by replacing our normal vegetable oil with olive oil, we can fry (on occasion) and get a lot of health benefit, too. I also wanted to test how frying would react with the smoky flavor.

What you need:

  • 1 large zucchini in 1/4 inch slices
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg beaten
  • enFuso Smoked Olive Oil
  • Salt and pepper

First, make an assembly line starting with your eggs, then bread crumbs, and Parmesan cheese. Then dip the zucchini slices in each bowl, coating them well.

At the end of my assembly line you can see the finished zucchinis. Next, cover the bottom surface of a frying pan with enFuso Smoked Olive Oil. Turn the heat on medium and toss the coated zucchinis in the hot oil.

Once brown on underside (should take about 2-3 minutes), flip over and brown the other side. Place finished zucchinis on a plate covered with a paper towel to help absorb excess oil. Continue to add oil as needed until all zucchinis have been fried. I added a little basil for garnish and served to my family.

The recipe turned out great! Quite delicious – give it a try!
