    Made a double batch yesterday for a party & served with two dips - ranch & dill. Huge success & so easy! Had no scallions so substituted 2 large shallots. Also added 1/4 cup crab meat (MD blue steamed in Old Bay) leftover from Labor Day party. Pay attention to getting as much liquid out of the zucchini as possible-put in colander, sprinkle with coarse sea salt, press with back of large spoon every 10 minutes until dry. Perfect recipe for a large zucchini.

    I absolutely loved this recipe when the zucchini was fried it had a wonderful and light taste, instead of using scallions i used onions and chives it was a good substitute and instead of using sour cream for the dipping sauce i used Parmesan Peppercorn dressing witch you can also find on this website i loved this recipe and hope you do to
