Bang Bang Zucchini
Crunchy baked pieces of zucchini are drizzled with bang bang sauce for a delicious and easy meal.
Yes, I’m still obsessed with bang bang sauce. As far as I can tell, this sauce goes with just about everything. I love it with cauliflower, pasta, etc. My latest version is with zucchini.
Think bite-sized baked zucchini fries drizzled with this savory, sweet and spicy sauce. Zucchini pieces are coated in panko crumbs and baked until crispy. I love the contrast of the crunchy outer coating and soft cooked zucchini. I also love that the zucchini skin maintains its beautiful green color while cooking.
A few people have been asking me what sweet chili sauce I use for my bang bang sauce. I finally remembered to take a photo!
(Update! I no longer have been able to find this sauce, but I’ve since tried quite a few other brands and they work just as well.)

- 2 small zucchini cut into bite-sized pieces (approximately 1-inch rectangles)
- 1 cup panko bread crumbs Kikkoman brand preferred for even baking
- 2 large eggs whisked
bang bang sauce
- 2 tbsp sweet chili sauce I bought mine from Asian grocery stores
- 1-2 tsp hot sauce I used sriracha
- 1/4 cup light/low fat mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp honey
Preheat oven to 400°F. Dip zucchini pieces in egg and then roll in panko a few times until fully coated and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until coating is a dark golden brown and crunchy.
While zucchini is cooking, make the bang bang sauce. Add all ingredients into a small bowl and whisk until uniform and no mayonnaise lumps remain. Drizzle over finished zucchini.
