    I made these for a girls night in and everyone loved them! They're simple, quick, and delicious. All around great pick.

    The first time I made these I followed the redipe exactly and they were a big hit! My husband, who HATES zucchini, even asked for seconds! I have made them again with italian bread crubms (which I always have in my pantry)instead of the shake and bake and it is still very tatsy!

    I used regular bread crumbs and mixed spices in it. I should have used more spices because the batter was a little tasteless. Also would have been better fried, but baked is healthier. Didn't use lemon zest, but i used lemon juice for the aioli. Overall, it's a healthy snack and I enjoyed it.
