Ingredients
1 zucchini cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 large egg
about 1/3 cup of flour (more if you have a big zucchini!)

Lightly sprinkle the cut zucchini slices with salt.
Leave them for 5-7 minutes so that they become well salted and slightly pickled.

Whisk one egg into another shallow bowl and add a pinch of salt.
Coat the zucchini slices with flour on both sides and set aside.
Heat about 2 T of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat.
