Ingredients

For the cauliflower tempura:

  • 2 cups extra virgin olive oil, for frying

  • 1 cup Kikkoman® Tempura Batter Mix

  • 1 tablespoons Kikkoman® Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce

  • ¾ cup ice-cold water

  • 3 cups cauliflower florets

For the sauce:

  • ⅓ cup honey

  • 3 tablespoons Kikkoman® Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce

  • 2 teaspoons Kikkoman® Sesame Oil

  • 1 tablespoon butter, optional

  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds, for garnish

Preparation

  1. Pour oil into a large pot or deep fryer. Heat oil to 350°F. Line a sheet pan with paper towels.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together tempura batter mix, sriracha and water until blended. Pat cauliflower dry with paper towels. Fry in small batches of 4 to 5 pieces, dipping 1 piece at a time into batter and carefully sliding into hot oil. Deep-fry 2 to 4 minutes until cooked and light golden brown, turning pieces over once. Remove; drain on prepared paper towel lined sheet pan. Skim off cooked batter pieces from oil between batches.
  3. In a medium pot, over medium heat, whisk honey, sriracha, sesame oil and butter until sauce is smooth.
  4. Toss freshly fried cauliflower with sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds.
