Crispy Marinated Mozzarella Strips

Yum, yum ;-)


  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. dried basil
  • pinch of salt
  • 8 mozzarella cheese strips, cut 1/4 inch thick
  • Ad
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup tempura batter mix
  • 1/3 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • oil for frying


Place mozzarella strips on a large plate. Combine the olive oil, garlic, basil and salt and pour mixture over mozzarella. Turn to coat both sides and refrigerate, covered, for 2 to 3 hours.

Place flour in one bowl. Egg in one bowl and tempura mix and bread crumbs, stirred together, in a third bowl. Heat an inch of oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Dredge each piece of mozzarella in the flour, then in to the egg and then in to the tempura and crumb mix.

Fry the mozzarella for about 3 to 5 minutes until golden brown, turning once.
