Description

Why wait for the county fair when you can make these low carb treats at home?

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Zucchini
  • 4 cups Canola Oil For Deep Frying
  • Sea Salt

Preparation

Using a julienne peeler, cut the zucchini into very thin pasta-like strips. Discard the center core with the seeds. Blot with paper towel to remove as much moisture as possible. Heat 3 inches of oil in a deep fryer to 375. Add the zucchini strands without over filling the pan. Turn when the zucchini strands are golden brown. Brown the other side; remove and drain on paper towel. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve at once.

Very similar to the fried daikon radish I made a few days ago (also a low carb alternative to fries). I’ll have to try it with zucchini — even though my veggie garden had a melon meltdown (got some sort of melon virus); I only got ONE zucchini out of 5 plants.

Everyone in the family LOVED these! They shrink a lot so we got more of a taste of the strings. I can’t wait until the zucchini in our garden grows so we can make some more!

These are sooo yummy addictive. I made a few batches that were too oily and it was because the oil wasn’t hot enough and I soaked it too long. I think the trick is getting it so hot they crisp on contact practically.

I made them and loved them! They were so fine and dainty, and SWEET. It really brings out the sweetness of the zucchini. Very much like onion straws.

Thanks Renee – great for me (low carb) and my hubby (non-low carb)!
