Servings 4 Servings
- 1 pound asparagus
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 1 cup lager beer
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
For the Campfire Sauce
- 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
- 1/2 cup ranch dressing
In a deep pot or deep-fryer, heat about 2 inches deep of oil to about 375 F.
Break off tough ends of asparagus. Wash and drain well.
In a shallow plate, combine 1/4 cup of the flour and half of the salt, paprika, and pepper. Dredge asparagus in flour mixture to coat.
In a bowl, combine 1 cup of flour and the remaining paprika, salt and pepper.
Gradually add in beer and whisk until smooth. Dip asparagus in beer batter, a few pieces at a time, to fully coat.
Deep-fry in hot oil, in batches, for about 2 to 3 minutes or until coating is golden brown and asparagus is tender yet crisp. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Serve with campfire sauce.
