  • 20 stalk Asparagus
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Lemon Infused Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Kara-age Mix (or Panko)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Lemon Zest


To Oven Bake:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Wash asparagus and snap off bottom ends. Lay out on non-stick baking pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Into gallon zip lock bag, pour in kara-age mix. Place in asparagus and dredge in mixture until all spears of asparagus are coated. Lay out on baking pan and bake in hot oven until coating begins to brown, about 7 minutes. Asparagus should be fork tender.

Devour while warm, and season with sea salt and lemon zest if you would like.

To Fry:
Preheat 2 Tbsp olive oil in non-stick skillet on high heat. Prepare asparagus as described above. When oil is hot, drop in each spear and allow to fry until golden brown – about 60 seconds each side. All to drain on paper towels. Season with sea salt and/or lemon zest. Devour while warm.
