Air-Fryer Zucchini Fries

These crunchy, crispy zucchini fries turn very tender in the air fryer and have a delicate natural sweetness from the cooking process. The simple dipping sauce is very tomato forward, with just enough acid from the vinegar and mayonnaise to add incredible tang.

Nutrition Profile:


  • Cooking spray

  • 1 large zucchini (10 ounces)

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 ½ cups panko breadcrumbs

  • cup canola mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted tomato paste

  • ½ tablespoon red-wine vinegar

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Coat air-fryer basket with cooking spray. Cut zucchini into cut 24 (2-inch-long) wedges.

  2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Combine eggs and water in another shallow dish. Place panko in a third shallow dish. Dredge the zucchini first in the flour, then in the egg, then in the panko, shaking off excess. Place half of the zucchini in the prepared basket. Coat well with cooking spray. Cook at 360 degrees F until crispy and tender, about 12 minutes, turning once during cooking. Repeat with the remaining zucchini.

  3. Combine mayonnaise, tomato paste, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk until smooth. Serve the dipping sauce with the zucchini.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
