DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare zucchini: Cut zucchini slices in half if they are long. Slices measuring about 3 inches long work best.
  • Put slices in a bowl, salt, and let sit 20 minutes. Pour off liquid before putting in batter.
  • Make the batter: Pour the soda into a bowl, and stir in flour and salt slowly, using a whisk or fork to mix.
  • 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.
  • Serve hot. (Serves 4 as a side dish, 6-8 as an appetizer/meze.).
