Step by step method

  • Step 1

    To start preparing the Roman-style fried zucchini you have to start to clean zucchini, remove the ends and then cut them into small, fairly thin sticks, about 4 mm.

  • Step 2

    Put the zucchini sticks all in a bowl and sprinkle them with salt. Leave them to rest for about half an hour so that they lose the vegetation water.

  • Step 3

    Remove the water released from the zucchini, dry the sticks with a sheet of absorbent paper and pass them in a mixture of flour and grated pecorino.

  • Step 4

    Remove the excess flour and fry in a pan where you have already brought the oil to temperature.

  • Step 5

    Remove them when they are of a pale gold color, and arrange them on absorbent kitchen paper. Add salt only if necessary and transfer them gently to a serving dish. Then serve hot Roman-style fried zucchini.
