In a heavy pot or a deep fryer, heat 2-inches of vegetable or peanut oil to 350°F. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, garlic salt, and pepper. Pour the beaten eggs into a separate bowl. In a third dish, combine the breadcrumbs and the Parmesan cheese. Dredge the zucchini sticks in the flour, followed by the egg, and finally the breadcrumb-cheese mixture. Lay the breaded zucchini sticks on a baking sheet as you finish coating them. Working in small batches, deep-fry the zucchini until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Carefully remove the zucchini from the hot oil and drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Sprinkle with the fresh parsley and serve with a side of marinara sauce.
