hasselback potatoes w/ herbed sour cream & zucchini crisps with grilled salmon & tilapia

I was watching the Food Network Channel the other day, of course, and Sunny Anderson was making these potatoes. I'd never heard of them before, but I looooooove garlic so I had to make them ASAP. And I thought it would be perfect to pair them with the zucchini crisps I saw on the FN website! Just FYI, these crisps are probably our favorite zucchini side of all time...they'll definitely be a regular summer side from here on out! We don't usually mix fish, but we only had one left of each, so we shared...the salmon was my favorite. For me, this was the perfect summer Sunday dinner!
Zucchini Crisps
from Ellie Krieger on the Food Network Channel
cooking spray
2 medium zucchini (~1 lb. total)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 c. freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/4 c. plain dry bread crumbs
1/8 tsp. salt
freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Slice the zucchini into 1/4-inch thick rounds. In a medium bowl, toss the zucchini with the oil. In a small bowl, combine the Parmesan, bread crumbs, salt, and a few turns of pepper. Dip each round into the Parmesan mixture, coating it evenly on both sides, pressing the coating on to stick, and place in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the zucchini rounds until browned and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove with spatula. Serve immediately.
