How to Make It

1. Step
In large, high-walled skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 375˚F (190˚C).
2. Step
Using a paring knife, remove the spiny leaves around the base of the zucchini blossoms. If there are long stems, trim to about ½-inch long.
3. Step
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and salt.
4. Step
Pour the water into the flour mixture and stir to combine, but do not overmix. The batter should have the consistency of heavy cream.
5. Step
Working in batches, dip each zucchini blossom in the batter, letting any excess drip off, then gently lower into the hot oil and fry for 90 seconds. Flip and fry for 60 seconds on the other side, until golden brown.
6. Step
Remove the blossoms from the oil and transfer to a paper towel–lined plate to drain. Season lightly with salt.
7. Step
Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.
8. Step
Enjoy!
