This is my reconstruction of part of a restaurant meal I had, namely, fried asparagus. This new (for me, anyway) way of preparing asparagus is delicious for veggie lovers as well as a wonderful way of getting non-veggie lovers to eat their greens!
- oil (for frying)
- ½ cup breadcrumbs
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 large egg (beaten with salt, pepper and 1tbsp milk)
Breaded Asparagus Spears is a community recipe submitted by Psappha and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.
The quantities for the flour/breadcrumb/parmesan mixture are very loose. When I asked the waiter about the asparagus at the restaurant, he told me simply that chef coated the asparagus in breadcrumbs and parmesan. So, feel free to play around with the breading mixture as you wish!
