  • 1
    In medium bowl, beat flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, the butter and egg yolks with whisk. Gradually add beer, stirring until combined. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  • 2
    Sprinkle zucchini sticks with additional salt; place in colander. Let stand 1 hour.
  • 3
    Wash and dry zucchini sticks. Immediately before using batter, beat egg whites in small bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Fold into batter.
  • 4
    In deep 3-quart saucepan, heat vegetable oil to 375°F. Dip each zucchini stick into batter; place in hot oil. (Do not fry too many pieces at a time.) Fry 2 to 3 minutes or until nicely browned. Remove from oil; drain on paper towel. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Refrigerate batter for two hours for the best coating on the zucchini.
  • Dry the zucchini to help the batter stick to the vegetable.
  • If you don't have flat beer, you can make it flat by pouring it back and forth between two cups (about 5 to 10 times).
