Courgette Fries

I always seem to have a few sad courgettes in the bottom of my fridge drawer looking past their best. Well, this is the perfect and most popular way in my house to use them up.

Total Time 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 3 regular courgettes
  • 1 egg white
  • salt

Instructions

  • Wash and cut the courgettes into 1cm batons.

  • Sprinkle the batons with salt then place in a sieve over a bowl and leave for 20 minutes to allow the salt to draw out the excess moisture.
  • Place the flour in a bowl and add in the sparkling water. You want a smooth runny batter almost like double cream.

  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg white until you have stiff peaks then fold it into the batter.

  • Place a deep pan over a medium heat and coat the bottom with around two cm of vegetable oil. Heat to 180oc. Drop a piece of bread in and if it sizzles and colours in 15 seconds, the oil is ready to use.
