  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Cooking spray
  • Marinara sauce, warmed


  1. Preheat air fryer to 375°. Cut each zucchini in half lengthwise and then in half crosswise. Cut each piece lengthwise into 1/4-in. slices.
  2. In a shallow bowl, mix bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon basil, salt, garlic powder, oregano and 1/2 cup Parmesan. In a separate shallow bowl, place eggs and remaining 1 teaspoon basil. Dip zucchini slices in egg mixture and then in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
  3. In batches, place zucchini pieces in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until lightly browned, 6-8 minutes. Flip each piece; fry until golden brown, 3-5 minutes longer.
  4. Sprinkle hot fries with remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan and serve with marinara sauce.
