My husband is not a big squash fan, let me just get that out there. Me? Just slice it up, toss it in a pan 'til it's warm, and I'm a happy girl. But ... ::drumroll:: ... he liked these! We are definitely having these again. I can't wait to get more squash!
Round Two, in the pan
Flipped Over (after 3-4 minutes)
Round One, Complete!
Sorry, no pics of them beautifully plated alongside creamy yoghurt... the dear baby started to scream right about dinnertime, so the camera was laid aside.
- Be sure your oil is HOT! The recommended temperature for frying is 350 to 375 degrees. The high temp means the food absorbs less oil and will actually be more crispy.
- Use a long-handled spoon to drop the fritters into the pan, unless you want scars.
- Don't try to fit too much in the pan at once... crowded fritters are not tasty fritters. Also, the more you add, the more your oil temp drops.
- Keep a fire extinguisher in your kitchen. Seriously. Mine is in a cupboard directly opposite the stove, and I make sure it's *always* in front. I'd rather have to shift things to get to the Windex when I need it than have to shift things to get to the fire extinguisher when I need it!
