  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) soy sauce
  • 1 c (250 ml) all purpose flour or gluten free flour
  • ½ c (125 ml) corn flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Cooking oil for deep frying

Asian Style BBQ Sauce

  • 1 c (250 ml) BBQ Sauce of your choice
  • ¼ c (60 ml) soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) Sriracha sauce
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) honey
  • 1 tsp chilli paste

  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped coriander

  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) sesame seeds
  • 2 red chillies finely sliced
  • 1-2 spring onions finely sliced

Instructions
 

  • Make sure the cauliflower florets are well rinsed in water.
  • Combine the stock, BBQ and soy sauce in a medium bowl.
  • Combine the all purpose flour, corn flour and salt in a large bowl.
  • Place florets into liquid mixture until well coated. Remove florets and shake in batches into the flour mixture. For extra crispy coating, repeat process once more.
  • Heat enough cooking oil for deep frying while preparing the Asian Style BBQ sauce.
  • Fry the coated caulifower in batches until golden and crispy on the outside (the cauliflower should still be al dente).
