Baking batter

Variant baking dough:

Cover the asparagus spears with flour. Flour extracts the moisture and later provides a crispy coating and sticks the dough.

Place the floured asparagus spears on an extra plate and add an egg, salt, pepper and some milk to the remaining flour.
Use a whisk to stir in a creamy, not too thick batter.

Put plenty of vegetable fat or rapeseed oil in a deep pan or wok. Bake the asparagus spears in very hot fat until golden yellow.

You can also use a deep fryer!

3. Buy and Prepare Asparagus

The traditional asparagus season in Germany begins in April and ends in June on St. John’s Day.

St. John’s Day is June 24 and is popularly known as Asparagus New Year’s Eve.

When shopping, prefer local asparagus, it is healthier and has no jet lag.

For the baked asparagus, peel the asparagus spears.

You can recognize good and fresh asparagus by its appearance: shiny skin, closed heads and no brown spots.

4. Baked Asparagus in Two Variants

You can now choose one of two variants for baked asparagus. The first variant is asparagus in batter, the second variant is asparagus breaded.

For both versions, pre-cook the asparagus in salted water. Depending on the thickness, cook the asparagus spears for 4-8 minutes until firm to the bite, then place in cold water and allow to cool, then dry.

4.1 Asparagus in Batter

I particularly like this variant. Season the precooked asparagus spears with salt and pepper. Dredge the asparagus spears in flour, then place in the batter and coat with batter. You can use a wine batter, a beer batter, or an Asian baking batter. I’ll show you my simple version of the batter in the recipe below.

Then bake at 170°C in hot fat until floating.

4.2 Bread Asparagus

For breading asparagus you will need flour, eggs, breadcrumbs or breadcrumbs.

Season the precooked asparagus spears with salt and pepper.

Turn the asparagus spears individually in flour, pull them through the beaten egg, then coat them in the breadcrumbs by pressing them gently.

Then fry the breaded asparagus spears at 170°C in hot fat until floating.

Mix the finest breadcrumbs with thyme.

5. Cold Sauces to Add to Baked Asparagus

Baked asparagus is best served with one or more cold sauces. Here I have prepared two beautiful variants for you:

5.1 Egg sauce

You can make a note of the cold sauce with eggs for the entire asparagus season. The egg sauce is delicious with baked asparagus, boiled asparagus and roasted asparagus.

Prepare egg sauce for 4 people:

Egg sauce or cold dip with eggs, capers, parsley and olive oil.
The sauce made from hard-boiled eggs tastes excellent with any asparagus dish!

5.2 Chive sauce

You can also vary the chive sauce with other herbs.

The basic sauce of creme fraiche and sour cream tastes just as fine with frozen herb mixtures.  

I prefer fresh herbs…

Chive sauce for 4 people

Optionally, you can add a little garlic and a teaspoon of mayonnaise to the chive sauce to make it more flavorful.

The baked asparagus tastes equally delicious with a homemade hollandaise sauce.

My safe recipe shows you how to make this sauce with cooking video instructions step by step.
