These Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms (Fiori Di Zucca Ripieni) are such a delicate, delicious appetizer! Stuffed with anchovies and mozzarella, then deep fried for perfection!
Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms are a typical Roman style appetizer that you can find in almost all pizzerias and family run restaurants in Rome.
Zucchini Blossoms may not be easy to find at the regular grocery store, but you can usually find them at most farmers markets.
This is one of my favorite, crunchy, and tasty appetizers. It’s is the perfect way to start off your dinner or brunch!
