Zucchini Flower Blossom Fritters recipe
Serves: 20-30
  • 2 cups of roughly chopped zucchini flowers (with the stem removed and interior material removed)
  • ½ cup of flour (+ or - a few tablespoons)
  • ¼ tablespoon of baking powder (optional)
  • ¼ cup of Pecorino Romano and ¼ cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ - ½ cup of water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  1. The technique is fairly simple: start by mixing the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper together. Combine water and egg, whisk together and then add to dry ingredients.Combine wet and dry ingredients (if mixture appears dry add more water)
  2. Add chopped zucchini flowers and combine all ingredients. Let mixture rest 30 minutes. Pan fry until crispy and golden (about two minutes on each side if your oil is at the correct temperature).
You can also simply take a single blossom, create a simple batter, fill the intact blossom flower with a single anchovy or a bit of ricotta and deep fry until golden brown.
