Old bay-seasoned crispy breaded zucchini spirals are a simple and quick appetizer. Serve this with a bottle of ice-cold beer for perfect weekend relaxation.

Better than fries, these crispy spirals come together pretty quickly. A clever way to serve zucchini – delicious, light, and crispy. And the kids love these, too!


3 cups of vegetable oil
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
½ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup cornstarch
1 zucchini, cut into spirals using a spiral slicer
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)


Step 1: Heat the oil in a large saucepan over 175 degrees C or 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Whisk the egg and milk in a medium mixing bowl until well mixed and place in a gallon-sized resealable plastic bag.

Step 3: Combine the cornstarch and flour in a separate medium mixing bowl until incorporated and place in a different resealable bag.

Step 4: Add the zucchini spirals into the milk and egg mixture, seal the bag, and evenly coat.

Step 5: Once the zucchini spirals coated in milk mixture, transfer them into the flour mixture. Seal and shake until fully coated.

Step 6: Shake off the excess flour and fry the zucchini spirals into the hot oil for about 2 to 4 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 7: Grab a clean plate and line with paper towels.

Step 8: Transfer the fried zucchini spirals on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

Step 9: Before serving, season with some seafood seasoning. Enjoy!
