In this recipe the ever versatile zucchini is fried and served with a cool strongly flavored dipping sauce. This dish is great as an appetizer or as a quick vegetable side dish.

This recipe calls out for tzatziki (see this recipe: or you can use the more garlicky skordalia if you wish (see this recipe:

Kolokithakia Tiganites – Fried Zucchini

4 large firm zucchini (about 1lb)
1/2 cup flour
4 Tbs Olive Oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Tzatziki to serve

Scrape the skin of the zucchini (no need to peel, just want to make the skin thinner). Cut the top and bottom off each zucchini. Cut the zucchini lengthwise in to quarters. You will have 16 slices. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the slices.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Dip the zucchini in the flour and shallow fry the slices turning once as they turn gold.

Serve the zucchini hot with the Tzatziki as a dipping sauce.

Serves 4
