Fried Asparagus in Beer Batter recipe

Preparation Time: 5 minutes | Cooking Time: 5 minutes

Who says that beer batter can only work for shrimp or chicken? Asparagus gets a punch of flavor with a spiced beer batter, perfect served on a Friday night with a good movie.


  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 (12-ounce) can beer
  • 2 pounds asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 to 3 cups vegetable oil, as needed


  1. Combine flour and seasonings in a large bowl. Add beer and stir until combined.

  2. Over high heat, add enough oil to a heavy-bottomed skillet to cover asparagus.

  3. Dip asparagus in beer batter and gently place in preheated oil. Fry until golden, turning once, 4 minutes total. Drain on paper towels and serve.

I like the tastes of the asparagus and beer batter together, but found 12 ounces of beer to be far more than is needed for the batter. Did anyone else think this? Maybe one step of the directions should be "drink half a can of beer"!
