Finally had a zucchini that wasn't fried!
Ok if you grew up in a house like mine you would understand. My parents liked fried food. They took things like a fresh veggie from their garden and placed it in a deep fryer.
I never even had fish unless it was fried.
Since becoming a mom of two I really looked at what I ate and realized this is not what i want my kids to eat. So this is very exciting for me that I made a zucchini that tastes great without frying it and covering it in salt.
I hope you enjoy this 21 Day Fix approved, quick and affordable recipe as much as we have.
