In this creative spin on clams casino, zucchini coins stand in for the bivalves.
Made as a side dish. Tasty but not amazing. I used a melon baller to scoop and place the breading and it was quite easy. I would make again, but only as a side dish. I didn’t think they had quite enough “oomph” to be a stand-alone appetizer.
Made these as a side dish for our wedding anniversary dinner, adding a clove of minced garlic and using wild boar bacon. They were delicious. Thanks to hoydich for the tip about using a round measuring spoon.
We have made something similar in the past using garlic rather than minced shallot and without bacon; the bacon adds a wonderful extra dimension, and the coins of zucchini make it company-worthy. If you were pressed for time and making this as a side dish, you could just halve the zucchini lengthwise, and go from there.
Will definitely make again.
