  • Mozzarella Cheese (they make it in Jpaan, now! And that from real water buffaloes!): 1

  • Lemon juice: 1/2
  • Baby leaves mix for accompaniment: as much as you like!
  • Salt: as appropriate
  • Pepper: as appropriate

Directions

  1. -Take the pistils out the zucchini flowers.

  3. -Lightly fry the zucchini and shrimps with olive oil. Season with a litlle salt, pepper and white wine. Transfer into a bowl and let cool for a while.
  4. -Cut the mozzarella into small pieces and add into the bowl. Mix the lot.
  5. -Delicately open the zucchini flowers and fill them with the above mixture. Do not fill completely as you need to close the flower by twisting their extremities.

  7. -Serve with baby leaves seasoned with a very little salt, some pepper and wine vinegar, and a wedge of lemon/lime.

      stuffing these is a great idea, usually i just batter them. I'll have to try it this way.
