Collect the Zucchini flowers in the morning - the flowers are open then. Do not wash them!
Finely chop the shallots and fry them lightly in a little olive oil. Add the diced chillies and Zucchini (courgettes). Season with salt and pepper, leave to cool and add fresh basil.
For the breadcrumbs, mix the buckwheat flour with the sesame seeds. Beat the eggs, add the cream and lemon zest, season with salt and pepper and whisk well.
Fill the Zucchini flowers with the vegetable mixture, hold them together well and turn them in the egg mixture.
Then coat in the buckwheat and sesame mixture.
Heat the olive oil and fry the courgette flowers until golden. Arrange on the plates and serve.
TIP: The courgette flowers can also be served with a tasty tomato sauce.
