We love fried zucchini! It is one of those guilty pleasure treats that make me feel better because of the tasty vegetable inside of crispy goodness. Whenever I get the chance to eat fried zucchini, I savor every delicious bite! Putting these fried beauties inside of tacos, was an idea that was born though a craving to combine both. Through this blog, I have come to realize that sometimes the best recipes come from zany cravings. These fried zucchini tacos were amazingly easy and amazingly delicious. We loved how easy they were to make and how easy it was to gobble up every sing bite.




Fried Zucchini Tacos




Sometimes a certain food takes you back to a specific time or place. For me, fried zucchini takes me back to one of my favorite places to travel – Lake Tahoe. There is an incredible place in Tahoe that serves the most perfect fried zucchini. If I have a bite of well made fried zucchini, I get taken right back to eating it on the gorgeous lake. Growing up, my parents would take us to this restaurant on the lake each summer. Before we ordered, we would indulge in perfectly crispy, perfectly zesty fried zucchini. I remember marveling at the stunning lake and stuffing my face with fried wonderfulness. Each time I eat fried zucchini now, I get transported back to this fantastic place. Our attempt to recreate fried zucchini in our own kitchen was so incredible, that these tacos brought me right back to that beautiful scene on the lake.

We love these fried zucchini tacos because they combine two of our favorite foods. Placing fried zucchinis in a corn tortilla was the tastiest plan. These tacos seriously blew me away! With a tangy and spicy sauce and a bed of fresh arugula, every bite was pure perfection!
