Shoestring Zucchini Fries with Sriracha Mayo

Oh be still my condiment, dipping-sauce loving heart. I am totally fanatical about, not only hot and crispy zucchini fries, but the tangy Sriracha mayonnaise that goes perfectly along with them.  I simply love any type of flavorful sauce or condiment and in this case I would say love is an understatement.

Just in case you’re unfamiliar with Sriracha, it’s a flavorful, fiery hot Thai chili sauce (also known as rooster sauce).  These days you can usually find it at your regular grocery store and the uses are endless, however one of my favorites is to make it into a creamy and spicy sauce.  Gets me every time.

 

 Shoestring Zucchini Fries

  • 1  large zucchini
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • olive oil
  • sea salt or kosher salt

Slice zucchini in half both width and lengthwise.  Continue to slice lengthwise into thin slices about 1/4 inch thick.   Once your fries are ready toss in flour to coat completely. 

Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a heavy bottom pan on medium-high heat.  Once oil is hot add zucchini fries in batches and cook until all sides are lightly brown.   Transfer fries to a paper towel lined bowl and toss with salt immediately.   Serve warm.

(Note: If your zucchini fries are not moist enough to hold flour you may have to briefly dip them in milk before coating in flour for flour to stick)

Sriracha Mayo

  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha hot sauce (or more to taste)
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in small bowl and mix well.

    What would your option be to make these gluten free. Any chance they would be good with no flour; just fried?

    • Hi Natalie — you could toss them in a light coating of cornstarch and then pan fry for a gluten free option. I’m pretty sure cornstarch is gf??
