I Love Asparagus! I will definitely give this a try.
While traveling last year we happened to stop in at a restaurant that looked inviting and found that they served fried asparagus as an appetizer. It was to die for! (Sorry, Christina, not that healthy for you and I also try to avoid fried foods as much as possible, but, it`s a nice treat once in awhile.)
On occasion, we do this at home or do fondue with it. We just use an off the shelf coating/batter mix, dip the spears in the batter and place them in the deep fryer, it only takes a couple of minutes per batch. They are awesome dipped in Ranch Dressing! It has been fun introducing this to other friends when we are entertaining!
