Grüner Veltliner is an ideal wine to pair with tempura battered dishes. Its crisp minerality and light citrus notes gently cleanse the palate and do not interfere with the delicate flavor of the tempura.
Cut zucchini in half. Quarter lengthwise. Remove the seeds with a diagonal cut. Cut again into strips.
