Zucchini Fries

Zucchini Fries
Serves 4

1 medium (6-8 inches long) zucchini
1 egg white
1/4 cup water
1 cup panko bread crumbs
Your preferred seasoning (I used Penzey’s Sunny Paris.)

1.  Preheat oven to 375
2.  Cut zucchini in half, giving you two halves, each 3-4 inches long. Leave the skin on.
3.  Slice zucchini into strips, approximately 1/4 inch wide. They should end up looking like raw french fries. 
4.  Put egg white and water into a bowl and whisk until frothy.
5.  Mix panko crumbs and seasoning together in a bowl large enough to hold the zucchini strips.
6.  Taking a few strips at a time, dunk into egg wash, then lay in crumbs. Toss to coat. The zucchini will not be covered completely.
7.  Place in a single layer on a grease baking pan or pizza stone.
8.  Bake for 25 minutes, or until firm but not crunchy.
9.  Serve with ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, cocktail sauce or honey-mustard (seen above).

Honey-Mustard Dressing
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon coarse-ground German mustard
