These super crispy deep-fried cauliflower florets are highly addicting and take just 25 minutes to make. These are a delicious appetizer or side dish.


  • 1 head cauliflower 
  • Oil for frying (enough to submerge the cauliflower in)
  • Salt


  • Cut the cauliflower into medium-sized florets, wash, and dry completely. 
  • Fill about 1/4 of your pot with oil, just enough to submerge the cauliflower in. 
  • Heat up the oil. You'll know it's ready if you drop a piece of cauliflower in and it starts bubbling. 
  • Drop a couple of florets at a time into the hot oil, stirring frequently until they turn golden-brown around (about 2-5 minutes)
  • Once golden, immediately take them out of the oil and place them on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  • Serve immediately.


  • Don't overfill your pot with oil.
  • Don't overcrowd your pot.
