Preparation

    1. In a bowl, combine the drained tuna with the ricotta, Parmesan cheese and a handful of chopped parsley and mix.

    2. Remove the stamens from the blossoms, wash carefully and stuff with the tuna mixture.

    3. Beat the egg with the flour and a pinch of salt and add the milk to obtain a creamy batter.

    4. Dip the stuffed flowers in the batter. Deep-fry in boiling oil until the flowers are golden brown and crunchy.

    5. Remove the flowers with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels to eliminate the excess oil. Serve while piping hot and crunchy.
