Calories 2381kcal


  • 12 Zucchini Flowers
  • 12 anchovy fillets
  • 300 grams mozzarella cut into ¼ inch by 2 inch strips
  • 125 grams 4 ½ oz. grams flour
  • 125 grams 4 ½ oz. grams water
  • 5 grams fresh yeast or active dry yeast
  • 2 cups Olive oil for frying or peanut, or a vegetable oil


  • Mix the fresh yeast, flour, and water until it's the consistency of pancake batter.
  • Allow to sit and fluff up for half an hour at room temperature.
  • Cut the mozzarella into pencil-thick, 2 inch strips
  • In the meantime clean the zucchini flowers: remove stamen & pistil from inside the flower with your index finger, then carefully rinse and drain on paper towels.
  • Just before frying stuff each flower with a strip of mozzarella and an anchovy fillet.
  • You can use another filling if you prefer. Some ideas are: cooked chicken, mozzarella and tomato, fresh figs and Gorgonzola, or no filling at all.
  • Dip in the batter and deep fry until just crisp.
  • Drain on paper towels, salt and serve immediately.
