  • 1 medium zucchini



  • 1 large egg
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp salt divided


  • Combine the egg with salt, 1/4 tsp salt, and pressed garlic.
  • Then slice the zucchini into strips and dip them in the egg mixture.
  • Now combine panko bread crumbs, plain bread crumbs, grated Parmesan, and salt in a bowl.
  • Then dredge the zucchini fries into the breading mixture.
  • Spray the bottom of your air fryer basket with cooking spray and place the breaded fries on top. Then spray the top and sides of the fries with cooking spray as well.
  • Ai fry at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 8 minutes.


  • Release excess moisture- Because zucchini has a lot of moisture, you can release some by sprinkling them with salt and laying them on a paper towel for 20 minutes before breading and baking them.
  • Preheat the air fryer- When you preheat the air fryer, it gets hot enough to cook the fries right away at a high temperature. Heating them at too low a temp will make them soggy.
  • Make them extra crunchy- You can add a little more Panko to the breading mixture and bake them for a few extra minutes in the air fryer to get an extra crispy exterior.
  • Don't overcrowd the air fryer basket- The best way to get even cooking is by spacing out the fries in the basket in a single layer to allow the circulation of hot air to hit all sides.
