Fried Zucchini Recipe | Low Carb Keto Friendly Appetizer

Easy Fried Zucchini Recipe | Delicious Low Carb Zucchini cut in slices and pan friend with a crust of Parmesan Cheese and Almond Flour

The first time you make this fried zucchini recipe you will say “How has this never been in my life!?!?

As an adult you may be trying to find ways to get those veggies in weekly and while I won’t call this “healthy” exactly, you do get to eat some greens, and it was made with almond flour, so we can call it even.

To keep the zucchini super easy to cook properly and also much easier to have a surface to dip with, these were cut in simple slices. You can also cut them in more of a “zucchini fry” if you prefer!

Either way, cut, slice, cook, dip and YUMMMMMMMMM!
