Air fryer Marinated Zucchine alla Scapece

Air fryer Marinated Zucchine alla Scapece. A classic recipe from the south of Italy, in the specific from the Campania Region. Thinly sliced zucchini are first fried, or in our case, air fried, then marinated in a mixture made of water, white wine vinegar, garlic, salt, and mint. Fantastic addition to an antipasto platter, to sandwiches, or as a side dish.

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 3-4 servings 1x


  • 4 medium zucchini (about 500 g)
  • 1 tablespoon evo oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 small garlic, slivered
  • salt
  • a few mint leaves


  1. Wash and slice the zucchini with a mandolin, not too thin, about 3 mm.
  2. Toss the sliced zucchini in a bowl with one tablespoon of evo oil then place in the air fryer basket and bake at 400°F for about 15 minutes. You can do this in two batches.
  3. In the meantime, in a small saucepan place 1 1/2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar, 1 1/2 tablespoons of water and a garlic clove, minced. Bring to a boil and boil for about a minute. Turn off heat and let cool.
  4. When zucchini are ready, place them in a bowl, add some salt, the water/vinegar mixture, a few mint leaves and toss well.
  5. Let sit for at least 1-2 hours, they get even more flavorful the day after.


Store leftover in the fridge for up to 4 of days.

If you want to fry them in oil, instead of using the air fryer, after you've sliced the zucchini, pat them dry with a towel, or let them dry out for 1 hour in the sun. Then proceed to fry. This way they will not get soggy or retain too much oil.
