Zucchini Blossoms...just beautiful!

Fried Zucchini Blossoms

  • Olive oil and Vegetable oil (for frying I use a 50/50 blend since Olive oil burns easier)
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon nature’s Seasoning
  • A few dashes of paprika
  • 12 ounces chilled club soda or good quality lager-style beer
  • 3 stiffly beaten egg whites
  • Zucchini blossoms
  • In a large pan, heat about 2 cups of oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer reads 350°. Combine flour and seasoning in a medium bowl, then whisk in soda or beer until almost smooth. A few lumps are okay-but don’t over-mix batter. Fold in egg whites. Dredge blossoms individually, removing extra batter. Lay each individual blossom in oil, taking care not to over fill the pan. Stir gently, turning over in pan. They cook quickly-around 2-3 minutes in total. Once golden brown, remove & lay on a dry paper towel to drain, and serve immediately.
