    This is a really tasty recipe. Very quick to prepare and great flavours! Had to add a small splash of water to get the polenta to crust up properly, but that was just my zucchini's I think.  -  05 Jun 2012


    This is an excellent recipie. Even my son who does'nt like zuchinni said so. I did increase the salt in it. Also I used one zuchinni and one yellow squash. Easy, fast and delicious. Thanks.  -  17 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was not impressed with this at all. The *batter* never really formed on my zucchini. And it ended up coming out very bland tasting. I will stick to my traditional way of doing fried zucchini -- slice the zucchini, dip in flour, dip in eggwash, dip in flour again, salt and pepper and fry.  -  22 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
