Asparagus Fritters

A tasty appetizer or side dish.


1 cup cold water

2/3 cup yellow cornmeal

1/2 cup flour

1/3 cup cornstarch

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 pound green or white asparagus, checked and trimmed

Canola oil for deep frying


For the dipping sauce:

1/2 cup Dijon-style mustard

2 tablespoons fresh dill, checked and chopped

2 tablespoons honey


In a large bowl whisk together the water, cornmeal, flour, cornstarch, egg, baking powder, and salt until well combined. Batter will be lumpy.

In a large skillet heat about 1 inch of oil to 350 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer. Place asparagus into batter, stir to coat.  Carefully slide 3 0r 4 coated spears into hot oil. Fry for 3 to 4 minutes, depending on thickness of spears, until golden. Remove with tongs. Place on paper towels to drain. Place ready spears on a baking pan in a warm oven while frying remaining spears.

Combine mustard, dill weed, and honey in a small bowl. Serve with asparagus fritters.
