Fried Zucchini

Sorry I haven't posted for a few days.  My plan was to have a new zucchini recipe everyday this week.  But plans change.  Especially when your youngest requires an emergency visit to the doctor.
My one & a half year old daughter decided to climb out of her crib.  On the getting out part she was successful, but she didn't stick the landing.  The result was a fractured forearm & a big purple cast that she will have to wear for a month.  An all this while were trying to finish up renovating our house & moving.  Yeesh!

Anyway, on to fried zucchini.  This is probably my favorite way to eat zucchini.  It's so tasty & makes a great appetizer.  Serve this with homemade ranch & you have a winner.  Here's the DL...
One medium to large zucchini
1 cup of beer batter or frying batter (I use the store bought stuff, but if you have a good recipe I'd love to see it.  Put in the comments section below)
canola oil
Wash zucchini & cut in half.  Then cut in half again lengthwise.  Cut each section into one inch strips (or to desired size).  Put 2 inches of canola oil in a medium pan & heat on medium or until about 350 degrees.  Dip zucchini strips into batter to coat.  Immediately set into hot oil.  Fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.  Then flip over & fry other side until golden.  Remove from oil & set on a paper towel to drain.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.  Serve with ranch dressing.  Enjoy!
