I really like a crisp coating for my fried squash. I have had others and have been disapointed. Here are a few tricks I have learned to have a good outcome! It is so simple.
- Wash and dry squash. Slice squash in 1/4 inch or less slices and spread on a platter. Lightly sprinkle salt over slices.
- In a large cast iron skillet add enough oil to make it about 1" from the bottom and use medium high heat. If you don't have a cast iron skillet -- however you fry will be fine. In a medium bowl add cornstarch, flour, onion powder. and stir with a fork. Slowly add beer and keep stirring. Stop pouring beer when you have the consistancy of cream.
- Pat squash dry (salting squash causes squash to sweat) Dip squash into batter and fry in oil. Put enough slices without touching, and turn after about 1-2 minute or until very light brown. Drain on paper towels and serve. I have soy sauce for dipping.
