Asparagus Fritti

Ingredients

  • asparagus spears (medium-sized)
  • tempura batter (see below)
  • seasoned flour (see below)
  • shaved Parmesan
  • marinara sauce
  • TEMPURA BATTER
  • 1 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Cup yellow corn flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 Cups seltzer water
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • SEASONED FLOUR
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Prepare tempura batter by whisking ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
Prepare seasoned flour by combining ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Dredge medium-sized asparagus spears through the flour.
Remove spears from flour, shaking off excess, and sink into tempura batter.
With the fryer basket in the oil, momentarily float the individual spears in the oil to cook the batter enough to prevent it from sticking to the fryer baskets.
When the batter is cooked to a golden brown, remove fried asparagus and allow oil to drain.
Sprinkle with shaved Parmesan and serve with your favorite marinara sauce.
