  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat 1-inch vegetable oil in a deep-sided skillet over medium heat.
  2. Whisk buttermilk, paprika, black pepper, and lemon zest together in a wide bowl.
  3. Pour flour into a separate wide bowl.
  4. Place a paper towel-lined plate near the stove top.
  5. Dip 1/3 of asparagus in buttermilk mixture.
  6. Transfer asparagus to flour and coat thoroughly.
  7. Repeat with a second layer of buttermilk mixture and flour.
  8. Fry coated asparagus in the hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to the paper towel-lined plate.
  9. Repeat the battering and frying process until all the sticks are cooked. Serve immediately.

Footnotes

  • Cook's note:
  • Add a 1-inch cube of bread to the hot oil to check if it is ready. If it turns deep golden brown in color after a count of 40, the oil is ready. If the bread cube browns too quickly, turn down the heat and wait a few minutes for it to cool.
  • Editor's note:
  • We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
