3 medium zucchini
2 large eggs, beaten
3/4 cup cornmeal
4 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Cut zucchini into 1/8-in.-thick coins. Place eggs in a shallow bowl and cornmeal in another; dip zucchini into the egg and then coat with cornmeal.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. In batches, place zucchini in oil. Fry over medium heat until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes. Flip each piece, fry until golden brown, 1-2 minutes longer.
Sprinkle hot zucchini with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
If you love easy air-fryer recipes, try making fried zucchini in your air fryer. Preheat air fryer to 375°F. Arrange the zucchini coins in a single layer in a greased air-fryer basket, spritz with cooking spray and cook until lightly browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Turn each piece, then cook 3-5 minutes longer. Or, bake in the oven at 400° on a greased baking sheet until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes, turning once.
