Simple Vegetable Spicy Fried Pumpkin Recipes

I love to serve these spicy sticks together with spicy giant pumpkin seeds with grilled whole fish, such as bluefish, trout or red snapper. But they also go very well with fat, juicy turkey burgers.

Make 6 servings

  • 1 cup all purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons old Bay or Cajun seasonings;
    Or 2 teaspoons ground red (cayenne) pepper

  • 3 pounds pumpkin, peeled, seeded and cut into thick sticks, as for French fries

  • Mild vegetable oil, preferably peanut for deep frying

  • Salt to taste

  1. Combine the flour with the Old Bay or Cajun seasoning in a plastic bag. Toss the pumpkin sticks in the seasoned flour, tapping off the excess.

  2. Heat the oil to 375 F in a deep fat fryer. Fry the pumpkin sticks, in batches, until crisp and golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per batch.

  3. Remove the spicy fried pumpkin with giant pumpkin seeds from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Keep the fires warm in a 375 F oven while frying the remaining pumpkin.

  4. Sprinkle with salt and serve this simple vegetable recipes hot.
