Fried Zucchini Recipe

Here's a great fried zucchini recipe or fried okra recipe, or fried squash recipe, or in this case, I made all three.

It is one of my favorite foods! Delicious served with ranch dressing.

My husband begged, so I finally made a big batch of zucchini, fried okra, and fried squash. Here it is. Yum, yum!

Ingredients - approximates

fried zucchini recipe

  • 4 zucchini, or squash, or okra, or a combination
  • 3 cups flour
  • salt & pepper, or Lawry's seasoning salt
  • garlic powder
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • oil for frying


  1. Whisk together milk and egg in a bowl
  2. Put flour in large bowl and season heavily with salt and pepper and about a tsp of garlic powder. The flour must be heavily seasoned because this is where the flavor is. Test it by dabbing a little on your finger and licking; it should taste good.

Enjoy!! This makes a mess, but isn't hard, and is definitely worth your efforts.

Note: After it's all finished cooking I give the whole plate a very light sprinkling of Lawry's Seasoning Salt.
