Is there anything better than fries? Don’t answer – that was rhetorical.
This recipe for perfectly crispy yet light zucchini fries comes from the popular meze restaurant Skotadis on the island of Aegina.
To make fried zucchini, we begin by placing our zucchini in a large pan, covered with the salt, and then water. Then place it in the fridge for 3 hours. This will ensure they stay crisp, they won’t soak up too much of the oil, and the crust will be extra crispy too.
Strain the zucchini, and cover each piece in flour.
Fry in 2-3 batches, in hot oil over medium-high heat.
Place your fries on paper towels for a bit to soak off excess oil.
Serve and enjoy!
