INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs (70g)
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour (35g)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • 1 large egg (beaten with 2 tbsp water)
  • 2 large yellow squash (or zucchini)
  • Salt to taste
  • Ketchup for serving

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Toast panko bread crumbs in a pan (without oil) until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  • Combine all-purpose flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Mix well and set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat egg with 2 tablespoons of water.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Cut off the tops and tails of yellow squashes (or zucchini). Cut each squash into quarters length-wise. Then cut each strip into quarters about 2 to 2½ inches in length.
  • Dredge a piece of squash in flour mixture. Then dip in egg mixture and finally coat with toasted panko bread crumbs. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat until all the pieces of squash are coated.
  • Transfer baking tray to the oven and bake coated squash for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender.
  • Remove and sprinkle baked fritters with some salt.
  • Serve immediately with ketchup.
