Fried Zucchini Blossoms

New recipe on the blog! Crunchy, salty, and utterly addictive, fried zucchini blossoms make for a delicious starter! One of my favourite dishes🍴 You can eat them like candies; they are that good 😋

Zucchini Blossoms


    • Vegetable oil (for frying)
    • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 large egg yolks
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 12 ounce weiss beer
    • Zucchini blossoms (stamens removed; about 2 dozen)
    • Sea salt
    • Basil
    • Anchovies
    • Mozzarella


Gently open each zucchini blossom and nip off the stamen. Place a piece of mozzarella, anchovies and basil inside each blossom and twist lightly to close. Pour 3 inches of oil in a deep fryer or large, heavy pot and heat to 375 degrees F/ 180 decrees C. In a deep mixing bowl, lightly beat the egg yolks and pour in the ice water; mix to combine. Add the flour and continue to mix until the batter is the consistency of heavy cream. Dip 2 zucchini flowers at a time in the batter to coat completely, letting the excess drip off ( this is important to prevent hot oil splashing ). Fry the flowers in the hot oil for 2 minutes until crisp and golden brown. Drain the fried flowers on a platter lined with paper towels, season with salt and pepper while they are still hot. Repeat with the remaining zucchini flowers.

Serve them when they’re still hot!


If you don’t like anchovies or mozzarella you can always use other ingredients such as ricotta and ham. There’s a variety of combination, just try it!

  3. What a fabulous combination of ingredients! The smoothness and wonderful chew of melted mozzarella with the brightness of the basil and the salty punch of anchovies… genius.
