Perfect for when you want something covered in fried beer batter. These fried zucchini blossoms are a great homemade recipe for when you want your veggies to not only be crispy, but also fun to eat.

Fried Zucchini Blossoms

 1 cup Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 1 cup all-purpose flour
 1 tsp salt
 ½ bottle chilled lagerstyle beer (we used Yuengling)
 8-10 zucchini blossoms (stamens removed)

In a large, shallow pot or frying pan, heat about 2" oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer reads 350°.


Combine flour and salt in a medium bowl, then whisk in beer until almost smooth (some small lumps are welcome—don't over whisk or you'll deflate the batter).


One by one, dredge the blossoms in batter, shaking off the excess; gently lay them in the oil.


Cook, flipping once with a slotted spoon, until golden brown, about 30 seconds on each side.


We actually cooked ours one at a time, because we wanted to get the timing right, without disrupting the other blossoms.


Transfer to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with sea salt and devour while hot - but not too hot!
