parmesan crusted asparagus

my final asparagus dish for the week was this deep fried version. the stems were dipped in beaten egg (add salt, pepper and a bit of nutmeg) then rolled in a mix of breadcrumbs and parmesan before being deep-fried for a few minutes on each side, until the breadcrumbs were browned.

i squeezed lemon over mine and ate half plain and dipped the rest into (the-most-amazing-and-wonderful,-make-it-if-you-haven’t-and-you’ll-love-it,-i-promise) tomato jam which was a great flavour combination. dipping it into mayo was less successful.
