Preparation

How to make battered zucchini flowers

  • Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan to 180°C  using a kitchen thermometer to accurately gauge the temperature.
  • Whisk together the flour and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Slowly whisk in enough sparkling water to make a pourable batter; it shouldn't be totally smooth.
  • Dip the zucchini flowers into the batter, letting the excess drip off.
  • Deep-fry 2-3 at a time until golden and crisp, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove from the oil and drain on kitchen paper.
  • Season with a little flaked salt.
  • Repeat step 3 for the remaining zucchini flowers.
  • Serve hot with a garnish of radicchio leaves.
