1 pound asparagus(cleaned and trimmed)
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cajun seasoning
Vegetable or Canola oil for frying

Boil asparagus in water or broth for 10-15 minutes or until they are to your desired tenderness.

Then place in cold water to stop the cooking process

Beat egg and milk together in a shallow bowl

Place the flour into another shallow bowl

Combine breadcrumbs and seasonings into a 3rd shallow bowl

Take a few stalks at a time from the cold water (shake off excess water) and coat them in the flour, then into the milk/egg mixture, then the breadcrumb mixture

Place all the stalks to the side on a plate until you have them all coated

Heat the oil to 350 degrees and fry the asparagus stalks (a few at a time) until golden brown, about 1 minute.

Drain beans onto paper towels.

Sprinkle with salt if desired and serve
