I love to cook things that are fresh but different and during the summer you can find the best zucchini. When I was younger my grandmother used to fry up zucchini for me when I was visiting and it soon became a favorite. My husband on the other hand never would eat it, said he just didn’t like the taste, so I thought I would try out this little concoction and he fell in love!
