Wrapped Asparagus With Pork & Sesame Seeds

This was an easy and delicious finger food to make for all occasion. It consists of both meat and vegetable which make it a health snack even though it is a deep-fry food.

The original recipe used only white sesame while I use a mixture of white and black sesame seeds. For this dish, you need to purchase those thick and fat asparagus instead of the thin type so that it could be easily wrapped by the pork slices.

For this dish, I made two different version. 4 are coated with sesame seeds while 2 are coated with breadcrumbs.

6 Slices Of Pork Fillet
6 Thick Asparagus
20g White Sesame Seeds
5g Black Sesame Seeds
3 Shallots, thinly slices
2" Ginger, finely grate
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1/2 Beaten Egg
2 Teaspoon Light Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Mirin/Rice Wine
Dash Of Pepper & Sesame Oil

1. Pound the pork slices with the back of the knife to make it more tender and spread out.
2. Marinate it with shallot, ginger and seasoning for at least 30 minutes.
3. Cut all the asparagus into equal length then use a vegetable peeler and scrape off the skin around 2" from the bottom part of the stem.
4. Wrap each asparagus with 1 piece of the marinated pork slice tightly then dust with some cornstarch.
5. Deep in the beaten egg then coat with the white and black sesame mixture.
6. Set aside while repeating the rest of the ingredients.
7. Heat oil in a pot, then deep-fry in medium heat until crisp and golden brown, drained and set aside before serving. Posted by Picasa
