COURGETTE CHIPS
Trim 800g • 1 1/3 lb courgettes and cut into chips about 1cm • 1/2 in thick. In a large bowl, whisk 1 medium egg with 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp still or fizzy water, and some sea salt and paprika. Toss the chips with the egg mixture to very lightly coat. To fry, heat 1cm • 1/2 in vegetable oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat until a drop of the egg mixture sizzles when added. Removing the chips with a slotted spoon (so that excess egg mixture is left behind), fry them in batches for a few minutes, turning halfway, until golden and crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain on kitchen paper; then scrunch over some sea salt To roast, preheat the oven (before coating the chips) to 250C/230C fan/gas 10 and lightly brush the base of two roasting tins with olive oil Arrange the coated chips in the dishes in a single layer and roast for 25-30 minutes until golden, turning with a spatula halfway through (a lower tray may take longer than one on top).
