Before we grilled the salmon, I prepared Zucchini Fries (recipe below). I just added things together to make a seasoned "breading" for them. In a shallow bowl, I mixed 1/4 cup golden ground flax, 1/4 cup blanched almond flour and 1/2 cup of finely shredded Parmesan. To that mixture I added 1/2 teaspoon each of: onion powder, garlic powder, paprika and then 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning and a few generous dashes of cayenne for some zip and mixed it together well. In a medium bowl, I made an egg wash by beating 2 eggs with 2 tablespoons olive oil and seasoned it with salt and pepper. I cut 2 medium-large zucchini into 2" long sticks. I added the zucchini sticks, about 1/3 at a time, to the egg wash, tossing to coat well. I lined a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and then used my right hand for handling the "wet mixture" and reserved my left hand for rolling them in the "dry seasoned mixture". I lined them on the baking sheet and baked them at 425 F for about 20-25 minutes until crisp. They turned out really good! I snapped a few photos below for you to see. Enjoy!
