Sweet Fried Summer Squash

This is a sweet, crispy coating for deep-fried yellow squash that is a tasty treat for all us veggie lovers!
Basically you need:
2 yellow squash, cut into 1/4 inch rounds
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
2 cups shortening, melted

1.. Allow squash to rest for 5 minutes after cutting to release its moisture.  Stir the flour, sugar, and salt together in a shallow bowl.  Dredge the squash slices in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess and set aside until needed.
2.  Melt the shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Arrange the squash in a single layer in the skillet.  Cook, turning once, until golden brown, about five minutes.  Drain on paper towels.
