Fried Zucchini and Onion Rings make a special and festive treat to serve to your 4th of July family and friends. You can prepare in advance and fry them up just before serving. If you use an outdoor fryer or use the gas grill burner attachment, please be careful of children and splattering, or spilling, hot oil.
Fried zucchini and onion rings
1 yellow onion
3 cups flour
¾ tablespoon paprika
½ cup of milk
1 bottle of canola oil
1-tablespoon Creole seasonings
Salt and pepper
Cut the zucchini into 2-inch sticks. Cut the onion into ½ inch rings (don’t forget to peel and remove the skin of the onion).
Begin heating your oil on a medium heat in a large pot or deep fryer.
In a mixing bowl whisk together the eggs and the milk and set aside.
In another mixing bowl whisk together the flour, paprika, salt and pepper.
In small batches coat the onion and zucchini in the egg mixture first and then the flour mixture.
Once everything is coated use one zucchini stick and add it to the oil to see if the oil is hot enough. You will know if the oil is hot enough because bubbles will immediately surround the zucchini.
When the fryer is ready cook both the onion rings and zucchini in small batches for 6 minutes or until they are a light golden brown. When you remove them from the fryer set them on paper towels to catch the excess grease.
Season the fried zucchini and onion rings with salt, pepper and Creole seasonings.
