This simple "fish" is an easy, creative way to satisfy your craving for seafood. Thinly sliced zucchini is marinated in lemon juice, chives, and parsley, then wrapped with nori, which brings on the flavors of the sea. Then, it's dipped in a gluten-free batter and fried to light, golden, crispy perfection.

Ingredients

  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 4 tablespoons chickpea flour

Preparation

  1. Wash the zucchini and cut into 5 long, thin slices. Let macerate (see notes) in a bowl with lemon juice, cumin, pepper, salt, chives, and parsley. Cover with parchment paper and let rest for at least 3 hours.
  2. In a bowl, combine the chickpea flour and baking powder. Add water and stir until a thick paste forms.
