Air Fryer Garlic and Parmesan Zucchini Fries are such a tasty side dish or even appetizer. You have a crispy and savory zucchini fry that is loaded with flavor. 

Zucchini is something I always like to keep on rotation. I thought why not make some zucchini fries after my zucchini fritters were such a success.

Zucchini fries with garlic and parmesan are the perfect flavor pairing. Dip in ranch or even salt and eat alone. However, you choose to serve up these garlic zucchini fries they will be a hit. 

Why Air Fry Zucchini Fries 

  • Quick and easy prep to air fry. 
  • The air fryer uses less energy. 
  • No unwanted grease compared to frying. 
  • You get a crisp and crunchy outside just as you would have fried in oil. 

I could go on and on at how I love air frying. The main thing is it is quick cooking and you get amazing quality fries at the end of it. So, don’t wait and give it a try.

Do You Peel Zucchini For Zucchini Fries 

This is the thing, you don’t have to peel the zucchini. Now, if you don’t like the skin of zucchini then take the time and peel away. Either route these fries are tasty with or without the skins. 

I find the skins add a bit more texture and color, which is always welcome in my books. Plus it saves you time on prepping.

Tips For Making Air Fryer Parmesan Zucchini Fries 

  • Leave space in between each fry. If they overlap then they will not fully crisp up the way you want them to. So leave space between each fry. 
  • Aim to cut all your zucchini the same size, that way as they air fry they all cook evenly. If one is a lot thicker than another you will find that some overcook while others end up undercooked. 
  • If you don’t have a ton of room depending on your model of air fryer, batch cook. Turn the oven on to 200 degrees and just toss the cooked ones in a pan and let them stay warm. That way you have fresh fries to serve up. 
  • Zucchini fries are best when served fresh. They will become soft in texture as it cools down. So do your best to eat it fresh vs wait and serve later.

Something went wrong. To dip it’s Dry, wet, dry? Didn’t work for me. Ended up making broccoli as my side.

I think there's a mistake in the instruction to "cut into fries strips about 1" long and 1" thick." The fries in the picture are definitely longer than 1 inch.

I just made these in my Ninja. 12 minutes on air fry at 375 was perfect. They are crispy and delish!

These were so good, and so much healthier than doing them in a skill a with oil!

I made these and they were delicious! Although I ended up reducing the amount of time in my Ninja Foodi for each batch. I found that 12 minutes was best. We used Yum Yum sauce and we thought it was the perfect sauce for these. Thank you for this recipe.
