Mama’s Easy Fried Zucchini

Lisa Walker


I love the older recipes, they would probably tell us now days that it was unhealthy but lets face it our Mom’s and Grandma’s sure knew how to cook. I come from a family who all has the most awesome recipes. I always loved when we had pot luck family get together’s, the food was always out of this world. To this day I still use the older recipes because I just love them most of them are super simple and taste just amazing. This one here brings back so many wonderful memories of cooking in the kitchen with Mom, not only was it one of my favourites but it is also super easy to make too.

How to Make Mama’s Easy Fried Zucchini


  1. Cut your zucchini into desired thickness. Now the next step is a little trick my Mom taught me, season both sides of zucchini with a little salt, and lay on wax paper, the reason for this is that it brings the moister up out of the zucchini and the flour sticks to them better. Let them sit for about 10-15 min. You will see the water laying on top of them that’s what you want.
  2. On a plate add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of flour depends on the amount you are making and how much you will need and season with pepper ONLY. you already salted them so you don’t need the extra salt
  3. In a frying pan on medium heat add butter once melted add your zucchini and fry on each side for about 5 minutes or so. I keep flipping mine as I like them golden brown. Put fried zucchini on a clean plate lined with paper towel to remove the excess butter
