A very different recipe. I live in Erurope so no problem getting zucchini flowers. Finding them in the US is a problem. Love the recipe and will try it.

This recipe sounds delicious. Been wanting to make something with zucchini flowers for a long time. I'm in Singapore right now on summer vacation. Will see if I can get zucchini flowers here.
