Serves | Prep Time 2 minutes | Cook Time approx 10 minutes

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest (I never have it, so I never use it)
1 cup beer
1 pound asparagus, trimmed
Vegetable oil, for frying


Heat oil in a heavy saucepan (I use an electric skillet) until it reaches 375 degrees F.


Whisk together flour, salt, pepper lemon and zest in a bowl until combined. Add beer and whisk ingredients until smooth.


Dip asparagus in batter to coat. Remove excess batter before frying. Gently transfer battered asparagus to oil and fry until golden. Stir gently to prevent asparagus from sticking together. 
Transfer to a baking sheet that has been lined with paper towels and keep warm in a preheated 200 degree F oven.

Notes

I love asparagus anyways, but leave it to Paula Deen to batter it up and fry it. Absolutely amazing with Lemon Herb Dipping Sauce!

Sounds great!

A dash of local for every season
