Deep fried zucchini
Want to know how to cook zucchini in the deep fat fryer? Read on!
This time, after topping and tailing the zucchini we are going to slice them lengthwise. This is easiest in either a food processor or with a mandolin (be careful - these are very sharp!).
Again put the slices in a colander or sieve, and sprinkle with salt. Leave for an hour. Then rinse, drain and dry well (we don't want them wet or they will cause the fat to splutter and spit).
Turn on the fryer or heat up a deep saucepan containing oil.
Tip a little flour onto a plate and grind some black pepper onto it. Give it a stir to mix the pepper in. Then dip each zucchini slice in it.
When the fat is hot pop a few slices of zucchini in at a time and fry for about 1 minute or until they are golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve straight away. I like to grind more black pepper on them before eating them.
