Zucchini With A Fried Twist

Bridge Street

If you haven’t found a purpose for the leftover zucchini in your garden our next guest has a tasty way to use it this summer. Tina Zaccardi shows us how to make Frizzled Zoodles with Garlic Paprika Dipping Sauce.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Medium Zucchini Squash
  • 2 Cups of Buttermilk
  • 2 Cups of All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon of Ground Black Pepper
  • 2-3 Quarts of Vegetable Oil

Dipping Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of Mayonnaise
  • 2 Teaspoons of Grainy Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Teaspoon of Sugar
  • 3/4 Teaspoon of Paprika
  • 1 Clove of Garlic, Grated
  • 2 Teaspoons of Lemon Juice
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste

Directions:

  • Heat the oil to 365-370°. F
  • Using a spatula mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, sugar, paprika, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cover and place in the refrigerator.
  • Use a spiralizer to cut the zucchini into zoodles. The smallest setting on mine is 1/8”, which is what I used.
  • Place the zoodles in a large bowl and pour in the buttermilk, Toss to coat.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt and pepper. 
  • When the oil is at the appropriate temperature, Add some of the zoodles to the flour.
  • Allow the excess buttermilk to drip off before adding to the flour mixture. Toss the zoodles to coat in the flour.
  • Do this immediately before adding to the oil. Leaving the zoodles sitting in the flour to long will cause them to get gummy and clump together.
  • Shake off as much of the excess flour as possible.
  • Place in the oil and fry until golden brown. About 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined pan. Sprinkle with a bit of salt while hot.
  • Serve the hot frizzled zoodles with the dipping sauce.
