When I fry zucchini, I just use regular seasoned bread crumbs, or panko bread crumbs which give a crispier texture.

I have had Zucchini fried in regular (or seasoned) breadcrumbs, and cornmeal coating. Personally I prefer a basic egg wash and flour coating, or a Tempura Batter. Very light and crispy.

I LOVE Zucchini, so I've never found a way that I wouldn't eat it! Baked, stuffed, raw with a light sprinkle of Lawry's season salt, and my favorite. Boiled with frozen corn added... drain well and throw a handful of Monterey Jack cheese on top.

I add a little grated Parmesan to bread crumbs. My favorite way to cook them is spritzed with olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt and seasonings and grilled.

Zucchini is good coated with pretty much anything. When I use bread crumbs though, it's Panko. But, I also like tempura batter, or just plain old egg wash and seasoned flour. Zucchini is like the Leatherman's Tool of veggies. It can do anything!

I make fresh breadcrumbs with a good bread by whizzing it in the mixer, add some parmesan and some herbes de provence, add a bit of egg yolk to the mix by hand and grill for a few minutes.

It's also good if you add a couple of anchovies ( they have to be good anchovies, plump and not salty, preserved in oil is better as otherwise it tastes mainly of salt) or even sardines too. Drizzle with a bit of lemon olive oil and yumm....

I love it in Tempura batter or beer batter as well but have never made those myself.

I use packaged bread crumbs -- Italian style if I can find them -- and mix in some oregano, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese. Dunk the zucchini in egg, then in the bread crumbs.

I've never used cornmeal. That sounds like it's worth a try. Just don't tell my mom that I'm breaking a family tradition.

I love a good mix of all these for my breading.
A bit of flour,
well crushed crackers (saltines or Ritz),
packaged breadcrumbs,
cornmeal (if I have it readily available),
fresh Parmesan (as someone else mentioned),
& a mix of my own spices.

I do this with just about anything that I fry, especially pickles!

Wait, wait! You fry pickles? I've never heard of such a thing, do tell!

When I visit my grandmother in Italy, we usually do an egg wash and just dump it in some flour. Nice and simple. We usually fry the zucchini flower as well with the same method.
