Deep-fried Squash Blossoms

After managing to stuff only 7 squash blossoms with minced shrimp, I still had a whole colander left. What to do? Since I liked how the light coating of flour made the petals so crispy, I decided to fry up a batch. Deep-fried Squash Blossoms Very simply, place some flowery squash blossoms into a colander, sprinkle a light dusting of flour all over, and shake the colander so the flour is evenly distributed and excess flour falls out. Gently fry in medium heat. The petals will be very crispy, while the green ends stay moist. I snacked on the whole plate. Enjoy! But I wasn't done because I still had half a colander of squash blossoms left and didn't want to prepare them all fried.

  1. yummm!!!
    wondering what would u do next with ur half of squash blossom.

  2. Which ones did ya enjoy more? The stuffed or unstuffed ones? They both look yum :)

  3. Yum! I will definitely have to try them like this next time I find squash blossoms at the farmer's market. What a great crispy treat. Good tip on coating with a dusting of oil first. I would imaging they would get soggy otherwise.

  4. Bill,
    I like them stuffed too.

    I went very simple with the last of the batch.


    I liked them both. :)

    Coating with flour you mean? Yup, that's what made them crispy.
