Turkey SPAM™ Tempura
Gerald Castro

1 cup julienne sliced carrots
1 cup julienne sliced potatoes
1 cup julienne sliced green beans
1 cup tempura batter mix OR 1 cup flour + 1 cup cornstarch
garlic salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1 can (12 oz) SPAM® Oven Roasted Turkey, cut into julienne strips
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 cup julienne sliced eggplant
1 1/2 cups water
vegetable oil, for frying
salt to taste

Bring large pot of boiling water to a boil. Add carrots, potatoes and green beans. Blanch until just crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and shock in ice water. In large bowl, combine tempura batter mix or flour and cornstarch. Season to taste with garlic salt and black pepper. Add water in small amounts until a pancake-like batter consistency is reached. Add SPAM® and vegetables to the batter; coat well. Heat oil to 350F. Using large fork or spoon drop SPAM® and vegetables into hot oil. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Remove from oil, drain well and season with salt, if desired. Serve immediately with favorite dipping sauce.

Serves 6.
