Light and crispy with a hint of paprika, these never fail to impress kids and is a great way to use up excess courgettes if you are stuck for ideas.
5-8 minutes preparation
10 minutes cooking
3 tablespoons plain flour
1 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
Salt and ground black pepper
Olive oil for frying
- Wash the courgettes, trim the ends and cut in half if they are very long. Slice thinly and then slice again to make French fry style strips.
- Season the flour with the paprika, salt and pepper then roll the courgette strips in the flour, ensuring a good covering.
- Heat the oil in a small deep pan until it is very hot. Shake off the excess flour from your courgette and fry in batches until golden and crispy.
- Drain on kitchen paper and serve hot. We like them served in paper cones with allioli for a Spanish style treat.
