Deep-Fried Zucchini Spirals

Deep-Fried Zucchini Spirals

SHORECOOK

"We have always enjoyed fried zucchini so when I saw the clever way to spiral cut them, I thought why not deep fry them like onion strings. I did and they were a hit! Sprinkle with Old Bay® to make this a perfect side dish for seafood. They can also be served as an appetizer with your favorite dip. The zucchini may be cut into chips if you do not have a spiral slicer."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk egg and milk together in a bowl; pour into a gallon-size resealable plastic bag. Whisk flour and cornstarch together in another bowl; pour into a separate gallon-size resealable plastic bag.
  3. Place zucchini spirals into milk mixture, seal the bag, and turn to coat spirals completely. Transfer zucchini to flour mixture, seal the bag, and shake gently to coat completely. Remove spirals from flour mixture and shake gently to remove any excess flour.
  4. Working in batches, cook zucchini spirals in the preheated oil until golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer zucchini to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Sprinkle seafood season over cooked zucchini spirals.

I used squash and zucchini cut into slices. They tasted great although I would like them to brown better. I deep fried them and I would like to have a liquid breading recipe for deep frying.
