Beer-Battered Cajun Fries

Post  justmecookin on Wed Mar 09, 2011 10:19 am

Beer-Battered Cajun Fries

2 pounds russet potatoes
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Cajun spice
2 teaspoons garlic salt
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup lager-style beer, plus additional as needed
Peanut oil (or other high smoke point, neutral flavored oil), for frying

Cut potatoes lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices, then cut slices into 1/4-inch sticks (I leave the potatoes unpeeled). Soak fries in an ice water bath for at least 2 hours, or up to 8 hours. This removes the starch from the potatoes and makes for a better fry.

Mix flour, spices, and beer to create a thick, pancake-like batter, adding more beer if necessary. Divide batter evenly between 2 large mixing bowls (one batch will be used to dredge the fries before blanching and one batch will be used to dredge the fries for the second cooking). Add potatoes to the batter and toss, making sure to coat each fry completely.

Fill a large cast iron or enamel pot with 3 inches of peanut oil. Heat oil to 325° over medium-high to high heat. In 2 - 3 batches, add fries and blanch until lightly golden and limp, yet cooked through (see third image). This could take anywhere from 4 - 6 minutes. Watch the oil temperature carefully and try to maintain the temperature at 325° (it will lower drastically once the fries are added). You can use tongs to gently separate the fries while they are cooking; they have tendency to want to cling to each other. Remove the fries from the oil with tongs or a spider and allow to cool on a paper towel-lined sheet pan while finishing the remaining batches.

Once all of the fries are blanched, raise the oil temperature to 375°. Dredge the blanched fries in the second bowl of batter, tossing to coat. Still in batches, cook fries until crisp and deep golden brown (see second image), about 1 - 2 minutes, but this could be more or less depending on how much the temperature of the oil fluctuates. Remove to another paper towel-lined sheet pan, taste-test a fry, and season with additional Cajun seasoning or salt as needed. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings

Phyllo Wrapped Asparagus

Post  justmecookin on Tue Jun 26, 2012 7:33 pm

Phyllo Wrapped Asparagus

6 (9 x 14-inch) sheets phyllo dough, thawed according to package directions
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
6 (1-ounce) slices Swiss cheese, each cut in half
6 (1/2-ounce) slices deli-ham, each cut in half
1 pound asparagus, trimmed (about 24 spears)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray. Place 1 phyllo sheet with the short end facing you on a work surface. Cover the remaining sheets of phyllo with plastic wrap to keep them from drying out as you work. Lightly spray the phyllo sheet with nonstick spray; top with a second phyllo sheet and lightly spray with nonstick spray.

Brush the top of the phyllo sheet evenly with 1 tablespoon of the mustard. With a sharp knife, cut the layered sheets lengthwise in half, then crosswise to make 4 rectangles. Top each rectangle with one cheese slice half and one ham slice half. Place two asparagus spears near the bottom of each rectangle and roll it up snugly like a cigar. Lightly spray the rolls with nonstick spray and place, seam-side down, on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining phyllo, nonstick spray, mustard, cheese, ham, and asparagus to make a total of 12 rolls. Bake until the rolls are lightly browned and crisp, 15 – 20 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving. Makes 6 servings
