Author's Notes

The recipe uses crisp fresh asparagus spears, but truthfully, you could use a multitude of vegetables of your liking. Think zucchini, green beans, mushrooms, a vegetable Fritto Misto really.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a small bowl, whisk together Low-Sodium Soy Sauce (1/2 cup) , Rice Vinegar (2 Tbsp) , Water (2 Tbsp) , Brown Sugar (1/2 Tbsp) , Garlic (2 cloves) , Sesame Oil (1/2 Tbsp) , and Fresh Ginger (1/2 tsp) . Set aside.
Step 2
Add enough Canola Oil (as needed) to a large deep pot or dutch oven to come up the sides at least 3 inches. Attach a high heat thermometer to the side and heat oil to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Alternatively, you can use a deep fryer at the same temperature.
Step 3
In a medium bowl whisk together All-Purpose Flour (1 cup) , Water (1 cup) , White Wine (1/4 cup) , Egg (1) , Corn Starch (2 Tbsp) , Baking Soda (1/2 tsp) and Salt (1/4 tsp) until smooth. Set aside while oil is heating and Asparagus is prepped.
Step 4
Trim woody ends from Asparagus (2 bunches) (about 2 inch). If some stalks are quite a bit thicker than others, thin by lightly peeling with a vegetable peeler to create more uniform stalks.
Step 5
Once the oil is hot, dip individual asparagus spears into batter to evenly coat and tap off excess batter. Add to hot oil one at a time, cooking 6-8 per batch and cook for about 2 minutes per side depending on size.
Step 6
Remove with a slotted scoop to a paper towel-lined tray and repeat with remaining asparagus.
Step 7
Divided soy dipping sauce into small serving bowls and serve asparagus alongside. Garnish with Scallions (1/4 cup) and serve immediately.
