Fried Asparagus with Creole Mustard Sauce

If you live in the South, you know that vegetables should be fried.  I got this amazing recipe from Charm of the Carolines Blog.

Fried Asparagus

Fried Asparagus

1 lb. asparagus, prepared

1 c. all-purpose flour

1 c. whole buttermilk

1 egg

1 tbs. Tobasco

1 ½ c. cornmeal

2 tbs. Cajun seasoning

Oil for frying

 Heat frying oil (2 inches deep) to about 365 degrees.  Make three dipping stations.  ONE: flour.  TWO: buttermilk, egg, Tobasco, whisked.  THREE: cornmeal, Cajun seasoning, mixed.  Dredge damp asparagus in stations ONE, TWO, and THREE, then fry in oil for about 5 minutes or until golden.  Drain on paper towels and serve hot.  Goes great with Creole Mustard Sauce.

I don’t have any pictures of the sauce, but here’s the recipe…

3 tbs. Creole mustard
