Fried Zucchini Batter

This is a super simple, very adaptable recipe to batter veggies for frying. I used zucchini, but it would work with just about anything you want to dip in a light batter and fry to airy crisp perfection.

I ate these babies with (gasp!) no dipping sauce. The batter wrapper was perfect for me. They’d be great with some ranch though.

This is the best batter I’ve ever used for frying up some deliciousness. The cornstarch makes it absolutely light as air.

    this sounds wonderful … it reminds me of tempura in Chinese deep frying … would you please give me a substitute for the Old Bay herb and spice mix … it has crushed red peppers in it … looking forward to trying it … 🙂
