The first time I had asparagus fries was at Barn Joo a Korean gastropub on 35th in New York City. It reminded me of Zucchini fries which I also love. I usually get a pack of asparagus from Sam’s Club. It’s a 2 lb bag and I have a little less than half a bag left so I decided to make this before it goes bad.
To make wash your asparagus and set it aside. Place in a shallow container 1 cup all-purpose and add 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. pepper and 1 tsp. garlic powder. Mix until everything is combined. In another container beat 2 eggs. In a third container mix 1 cup panko bread crumbs with 1 tsp. paprika.
Dredge your asparagus in the flour. Then dip in the beaten eggs. Last coat it with the panko breadcrumbs mixture, make sure to press firmly to coat. Repeat with the remaining asparagus.
Get a skillet and pour about an inch of oil. Place over medium heat. Fry your asparagus in batches until golden brown about 2 minutes. Drain in paper towels.
Serve with a dipping sauce of mayo and ketchup, we also like to dip it in Chick-fil-A Sauce.
