  • Prepare asparagus by cutting off the tough ends.
  • Layout paper towels for draining the asparagus later.
  • In a deep fryer, or a saucepan, add approximately 2 inches of oil, and heat over medium/high heat.
  • In a shallow bowl, add tempura mix and water. Stir to combine.
  • Dip each asparagus spear in the batter to coat evenly, then gently shake off excess.
  • Approximately 5 at a time, carefully add asparagus into the oil.
  • Fry approximately 1 minute, or until the asparagus floats to the top of the oil.
  • Place on paper towels to drain off the oil.
  • Season with sea salt.
  • Repeat the process for the rest of the asparagus spears.
  • Serve immediately.
