Simply Amazing Zucchini Recipe : Zucchini Fritti
I am a big fan of zucchini but one recipe I picked up from Goop awhile ago takes the cake when it comes to zucchini dishes. It is an amazing side dish that is super easy to cook up and tastes oh so delicious. Check out the Goop recipe here, which is very similar to my version but I have made a few tweaks as I have cooked it over the past several months.
Last night’s dish that I enjoyed is shown above along with the few basic steps. Slice two zucchinis into thin slices about 1/8 inch thick and lightly coat with flour. Coat a large frying pan with olive oil (I use about a half an inch thick to make them a bit more healthier). When the oil is sizzling, drop in the zucchini and make a single layer to cook evenly. Flip them over once they begin to brown after about 45 seconds and cook the other sides. Drain and then quickly season with sea salt, pepper and lemon juice. And that’s it—a tasty side that, I dare say, often overshadows my main entree!
