    Um Safia's Note:

    Here's another grear vegetarian Greek dish. Soda water in the batter keeps these thin slices of fried zucchini light and crispy. A simple recipe, serve these as an appetizer or meze, or a side dish. Recipe by Nancy Gaifyllia, she says "The key to great crispy zucchini is to slice thinly and fry at high heat so the zucchini has time to cook but not absorb a lot of oil. Use a cheese slicer, mandoline, or long-bladed knife to get uniformly thin slices." Time to make doesn't include resting time. Posted for ZWT 4.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 large zucchini, washed, trimmed, cut lengthwise into strips 1/8 to 3/16 inch thick
    • olive oil (for frying)
    • 1/2 tablespoon salt

    For batter

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare zucchini: Cut zucchini slices in half if they are long. Slices measuring about 3 inches long work best.
    2. 2
      Put slices in a bowl, salt, and let sit 20 minutes. Pour off liquid before putting in batter.
    3. 3
      Make the batter: Pour the soda into a bowl, and stir in flour and salt slowly, using a whisk or fork to mix.
    4. 4
      Fry: Bring oil to high heat.Coat zucchini in the batter, use a fork to place pieces in oil and fry 5-6 minutes, until golden on both sides and batter puffs up. Drain on absorbent paper toweling just long enough to remove excess oil.
    5. 5
      Serve hot. (Serves 4 as a side dish, 6-8 as an appetizer/meze.).

      As the other review says, the only thing wrong with this recipe is that there isn't enough of it. I had some batter left over, but I think that was because my zucchini was more medium sized (hard to get large ones here in winter). Simple but great flavour. I served mine with tzatziki.
