TFF: I see a trend happening here

Me. Tyler. Deep frying.

See?

A trend.


I decided one day to make Tyler's Tempura Green Beans with Chili, Garlic and Seasame Aioli.

But I couldn't let it go with just green beans, which were great, btw.

So I doubled the tempura...


And made tempura carrots.


Then sweet potatoes. (Oh my these were so good!)


Then I made Talapia fingers, which the kids inhaled. I didn't even get to try this.



But the scallops were so good. Even cold the next day.



And the shrimp.... What a combination, me, Tyler, a deep fryer, and shrimp. Oh boy, oh boy, it was soooo good.

You can find the recipe for this in Tyler's book, Stirring the Pot, on page 146.

Aside from the obvious change, the only other one I made was to reduce the sesame oil in the aioli, part from choice, part from necessity. I didn't have 1/4 cup of oil left, only about a tablespoon, and knew from past experience that I would not enjoy that much seasame oil in the aioli, I find it a bit too strong.

This is my selection for this week's Tyler Florence Fridays.

Oh my, this sounds so wonderful! There is a very good reason we don't have a deep fryer. I think I would deep fry everything! Thanks for your commnet about my quinoa. Yes, I thought it was pretty funny that I was running out of mainstay supplies left and right but had quinoa of all things.

Those look sooo good! I love tempura sweet potatoes and eat all of them from the veg mix when we order tempura veg mix at the sushi place. Won't start frying at home or I'll never stop and my heart doctor will have fits.
