  • Step 2.

    Heat the oil for deep frying to hot (180°C). When oil is hot, dip handfuls of vegetable into batter, letting excess drip off and slide into the hot oil. Fry for 2- 3 minutes, turning a few times, until golden. Transfer on to a kitchen paper lined plate. Fry vegetables and seafood in batches

  • Step 3.

    Meanwhile combine the Aioli ingredients together and place in a serving bowl.

  • Step 4.

    Transfer fritto misto to a platter with the bowl of Aioli, garnish with some extra dill. Serve warm with plenty of lemon wedges and napkins.

  • Step 5.

    Tip: Fry the vegetables first, then seafood. Pat dry the seafood with kitchen paper and dust with some extra rice flour before dipping into the batter will lessen oil splashes when frying.
