  1. Preheat the oven to 200°F (95°C). Wash and dry the zucchini. Cut them into sticks about 3 � 1/2in (7.5cm � 13mm).
  2. Mix the bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, and lemon zest well in a shallow bowl. Beat the eggs in a second bowl. Spread the flour in a third bowl and season.
  3. In batches, coat the zucchini in the flour, then the egg, and then the bread crumbs. Transfer to a wax paper-lined baking sheet.
  4. Half-fill a deep frying pan with oil and heat over high heat to 350°F (170°C). In batches, add the zucchini and cook about 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while frying the remaining zucchini. Serve hot.
