Beer Batter Zucchini Flowers

Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 20 mins
Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 12 to 16 Fresh Picked Zucchini Flowers
  • Beer
  • All-purpose Flour
  • Sea Salt
  • Oil For Frying

Procedure:

  1. Use a soft brush to clean the zucchini flowers and carefully remove the inner stamen.
  2. Leave at least 2 inches of stem intact to aid in dipping and frying.
  3. In a small bowl, add about 1 1/2 cups of flour and a pinch of salt.
  4. Add enough beer to the flour, whisking until smooth.
  5. You want the batter to be the consistency of cream.
  6. Heat the frying oil in a heavy bottomed saucepan until it reaches 375 degrees F. checking it with a kitchen thermometer.
  7. Sprinkle the flour onto a plate.
  8. Dredge the stuffed zucchini flowers in the flour, then dip them into the batter until lightly coated, holding the flower over the bowl for a few seconds letting the excess batter drip off.
  9. Carefully lower the stuffed zucchini flowers into the hot oil in batches. Fry for 3-4 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown. Remove from the oil using a slotted spoon and set aside to drain on a plate topped with a few layers of kitchen paper.
  10. Repeat the process with the remaining stuffed zucchini flowers until they are all fried. Serve on a platter with a sprinkling of sea salt on top.
  11. Serve immediately.
