Chef Gianluca Deiana Abis: Fiori di zucchina fritti/ Fried Zucchini Blossoms

Prep. time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 5minutes

Difficulty: 2 out of 5

Serve: 4


15 large zucchini blossoms (fresh, gently rinsed and thoroughly dried)

2 large eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour (or as needed)

1 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon dry yeast

Pinch of nutmeg 

oil for frying, peanut oil or any other neutral-flavored


In a small bowl, beat an egg. Whisk in milk and add enough flour to achieve a dense consistency (think pancake batter). Whisk batter until most lumps are gone but do not over-whisk. Add dry yeast, salt and nutmeg. One by one, dredge the blossoms in batter, shaking off the excess; gently lay them in the oil, without crowding the pan. Cook, flipping once with a slotted spoon, until golden brown, 2-3 minutes total. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve!
