We have taken a different approach to these delightful shallow fried courgette slices.
They can be sliced thin lengthwise, floured, egged and fried in oil to produce a crispy snack.
We prefer to slice them into thick rounds, soak them in egg and then fry them over a high heat.
- 4 courgettes, 1 cm slices
- 3 eggs, whisked, seasoned with 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 tbsp paprika flakes
- 1 tsp black pepper
- Oil, for frying
Puncture each slice with a fork, steep in the egg for 15 minutes.
Sprinkle each slice with black pepper and paprika flakes.
Fry in oil over a medium heat.
Serve hot with cold yoghurt and cold red currant jelly.
The left-over egg can be fried like a pancake!
