Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 lemons, zested

Directions

Fill a large pot half full with vegetable oil. Heat to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Toss in florets to coat.

In a small bowl, mix together remaining salt, red pepper flakes and lemon zest. When oil is ready, remove half the florets from the batter and add to the oil. Cook until golden, about 4 to 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Drain to paper towels. Sprinkle generously with seasoned salt. Repeat with second batch of florets. Serve immediately.
