Asparagus Fries Ingredients:

  • 1/2 - 3/4 pound asparagus spears trimmed
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup ice cold water
  • salt
  • oil for frying

Caper Aioli

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon non-pareil capers
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic minced


  • Combine all ingredients for the aioli together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Heat 1/2 inch oil in a skillet until it reaches 350 degrees. If you don't have a thermometer, just drop a little batter in it and if it starts frying it's hot enough.
  • While oil is heating, whisk together flour, egg, ice cold water and a pinch of salt. Dip asparagus until batter. Turn to coat. Let excess batter drip off.
  • In batches, fry coated asparagus in oil until golden brown, 3 - 5 minutes. Turning occasionally. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately with caper aioli.
