About this Recipe

This recipe is a fun way to switch up cooking with Summer zucchini. Thinly sliced zucchini coins are coated in egg, panko, and Parmesan before air frying in the Brava until golden brown and crispy. Enjoy with your favorite dip for a simple appetizer. Chef Annie loves an herby yogurt sauce, marinara, or ranch for dipping.
