Oh, how I miss Southern Fried Squash! Growing up in the South means pretty much everything was fried!

My family always had a garden & Southern Fried Squash was one of my favorites! It reminds me of my childhood!

How to Can Bone Broth - The best way to preserve for long term storage - www.thehealthnutmama.comMy Dad, in his 80’s now, still has a huge garden so I am blessed to have access to fresh organic vegetables. Squash is always in abundance so I try to preserve as much as I can by canning it every summer. I make Paleo Squash Casserole just like my Grandmothers & Mother’s (well almost) just healthier! Another way I like to make squash is on the grill. So yummy!

So the other night my dad had brought me a big bag of fresh squash & I decided to try to fry it Paleo style. It turned out great so I wanted to share it with you. 

The measurements here are a guideline. Start off with the smaller amounts & add more as needed. 

Ingredients:

  • 2-4 med. squash
  • 1/4 to 1/2 c. Cassava Flour (add more as needed)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 c. Almond Flour (leave out for AIP & use just Cassava Flour)
  • sea salt to taste 1/2 tsp. to 1 tsp. 
  • 1/4 c. Avocado Oil or Fat of Choice add more as needed

Optional Add In’s:

  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder

 

Tools:


Paleo Fried Squash

 

Directions:

  • Slice Squash into 1/4 in. slices
  • Put both flours & sea salt in large Mixing Bowl. (Add any optional add in’s if desired. I personally love garlic powder & onion powder.)
  • Mix well
  • Add squash & mix to coat evenly on both sides
  • Let sit for a couple of minutes & mix again.
  • While squash is sitting in the flour mixture heat black iron skillet & Avocado Oil to med-high heat. Hot but not smoking. 
  • Add squash in a single layer. When brown on one side turn & cook until brown on both sides. 
  • Remove & continue to add more squash & oil until all squash is cooked.
