Deep-fried Zucchini

Photo by:

Crisp and delicious, you could make a double batch of these fritters for a party platter.Good with a little dish of your favorite dipping sauce. These fritters are delicious as an appetizer and also make a good accompaniment to grilled or fried fish or chicken.

Yield: Makes 4 servings

  • 1 envelope (¼ oz/7g) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (about 110°F/38°C)
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 medium zucchini, cut diagonally into ¼ in (5mm) slices


1. Stir the yeast into the warm water in a small bowl and set aside for 10 minutes, or until foamy.

2. Put the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the center. Pour the dissolved yeast into the well and gradually incorporate the flour. Cover with a kitchen towel and let stand at room temperature about 1 hour, until foamy.

3. Pour enough oil into a large frying pan to come about one-third up the sides. Heat over high heat until the oil is 350°F (180°C) on a deep-frying thermometer. Stir down the batter, and season with salt and pepper. Working in batches, dip the zucchini slices in the batter and fry them for 5 minutes on each side, or until golden.

4. Drain the fried zucchini slices on paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately.
