Stuffed Zuchinni Flowers

Laura Sharrad

Ingredients:

  • 12 zucchini flowers
  • 12 large basil leaves
  • 1 buffalo mozzarella ball
  • 12 anchovy fillets
  • Canola oil, for frying
  • ½ cup self raising flour
  • ½ cup plain flour
  • ½ cup cornflour
  • 250ml pale ale beer
  • Sea salt flakes

Method:

  1. Before you can stuff the zucchini flowers, you will need to clean them. Open up each flower and remove the inside bud.
  2. Stuff each flower with a basil leaf, half a bocconcini ball and half an anchovy fillet. Twist the top of the flower to seal it and to prevent it from opening when fried.
  3. For the batter, I like to use a really light beer batter as it puffs and crisps, and it’s super easy to make.  Combine all the dry batter ingredients (flours, sea salt and some freshly ground black pepper) in a bowl and slowly whisk in the beer. Continue whisking until there are no lumps and you have a smooth batter.
  4. Pour canola oil into a frying pan until it’s one-third full and set over a high heat until the oil is approximately 180°C. Drop a breadcrumb into the oil to test if the oil is ready – if it turns golden straight away, the oil is hot enough. Dip each zucchini flower into the batter and then place into the oil. Fry on each side for no more than 2 minutes, or until the zucchini flowers are golden and crispy.
  5. Drain on paper towel, season and enjoy warm as a snack.
