One night, my co-worker (and friend), Tammi, posted a photo of her dinner which included these yummy looking fried zucchini coins. She gave me the simple instructions, and now I am hooked on these. They are crispy, and salty, and fast!

This recipe works great with summer (or yellow) squash too!

I’m always looking for new ways to use zucchini from our garden, other than our usual recipes that include Spicy Roasted Zucchini, Zucchini Quiche, and Frosted Zucchini Bars. I also have my eye on this Zucchini Pie from South Your Mouth to try soon!

How To Make Easy Pan Fried Zucchini and Squash

For the full pan fried zucchini with flour recipe, scroll to the bottom of this page.


  1. Cut washed and dried zucchini (or yellow squash) into thin slices.
  2. Set up a batter station – one bowl of salted flour and a second bowl of beaten eggs.
  3. Dip the zucchini slices in egg first, and then into the flour mixture.
  4. Fry in a skillet of oil on the stove top over medium high heat until golden brown; flip and fry the other side.
  5. Remove from oil and place onto a paper towel lined plate. Grate fresh Parmesan over top.

Notes About Fried Zucchini Coins:

  • You can use zucchini or yellow summer squash or a combination in this pan fried zucchini with Parmesan recipe.
  • I tend to slice my zucchini fairly thin (1/8 inch), but you can leave thicker if that is your preference.
  • This fried zucchini recipe involves a two-step breading method. First, dip the zucchini into beaten eggs, and then dredge in flour. This will form the batter.

  • Be sure to season the flour mixture well with salt and pepper. I also sometimes substitute seasoned salt for regular salt in the easy fried zucchini batter.
  • For the frying oil, use vegetable or canola oil.
  • It is best to remove the pan fried zucchini to a paper towel lined plate to remove excess oil. Be sure to grate the Parmesan cheese over immediately and then taste to see if additional salt is needed. If so, salt while hot so that the salt sticks to the fried squash.
  • Try some of our other favorite zucchini recipes including Mocha Glazed Zucchini Bread, Zucchini Pie and Frosted Zucchini Bars.
