Zucchini Tots is a simple and delicious recipe for a late-night snack. And its light on the calories.
Lately, I have been working later and later into the night. Right around 11:00pm, I get hit with cravings for a second dinner. At that time, it’s too much of a hassle to cook a proper meal. But hard to focus on work with a churning belly. This year, I have enjoyed making these simple Zucchini Tots as a late-night snack. They are simple, delicious and doesn’t take much effort (~15 minutes). All you need is flour, egg and zucchini.
Zucchini Tots are thinly-cut zucchini slices that are dipped in egg-wash and pan-fried. Typically, they are served at restaurants as a side banchan during lunch or dinner. If you enjoy this simple recipe, try getting a few more Korean pancakes ideas here.
Oh and one more thing. Make sure to make the soy-sauce dipping sauce. The two complement each other very nicely. Bon Appetit!

Zucchini Tots is thinly sliced zucchini that is dipped in egg-wash and and pan-fried. You'll be pleasantly surprised by how good zucchini tastes by itself.
- Zucchini - 1 whole
- Flour - 1/2 cup
- Eggs - 2
- Salt - 1 teaspoon
- Soy sauce - 1 Tablespoon
- Vinegar - 1/2 teaspoon
- Lemon juice - Few drops (optional)
- Wash the zucchini. Slice the zucchini into small round circles. Get a pinch of salt and sprinkle on each slice (on both sides). Let it rest for 5 minutes - zucchini will release water. Use a paper-towel to dab off the extra-moisture.
- Place zucchini in a Ziploc bag. Place flour into the bag and shake vigorously to get each slice thoroughly coated. Take out a mixing bowl and whisk eggs to make an egg-wash. Then shake-off excess flour from each zucchini slice and dip into the egg-wash.
- Pour oil into frying pan and put on medium low heat. Fry zucchini on both sides until light brown.
- For dipping sauce, mix soy sauce, vinegar and lemon together. Enjoy!
