  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese plus 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • Cooking spray
  • Marinara sauce, warmed


  1. Preheat air fryer to 375°. Cut each zucchini in half lengthwise and then in half crosswise. Cut each piece lengthwise into 1/4-in. slices.
  2. In a shallow bowl, mix panko, 1 teaspoon basil, remaining seasonings and ½ cup Parmesan. Place eggs and remaining 1 teaspoon basil in separate shallow bowls. Dip zucchini slices in egg mixture and then in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
  3. In batches, place zucchini in greased air fryer; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until lightly browned, 6-8 minutes. Flip each piece; fry until golden brown, 3-5 minutes longer.
  4. Sprinkle hot fries with remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan and serve with marinara sauce.
