If you don’t grow zucchini, look for zucchini flowers at your local farmers’ market.
|1||cup all-purpose flour|
|~||Pinch of salt|
|⅓||cup dry white wine|
|2||Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil|
|⅔||cup warm water|
|6||anchovies, packed in salt (see Note)|
|4||oz. mozzarella cheese, cut into sticks|
|~||Olive or vegetable oil for deep-frying|
If you can’t find salted anchovies, substitute a good-quality anchovy in olive oil, such as the Scalia brand.
Culinate editor’s note: For a different filling, try small spooonfuls of ricotta instead of the mozzarella sticks. Skip the anchovies and add sautéed garlic, minced chives, salt, and pepper to the ricotta instead.
