Celery Root French Fries With Remoulade Dipping Sauce

  • Yield: 4 appetizer servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds whole celery root, peeled, and cut into 2-inch by 1-inch batons
  • 1/2 cup flour, seasoned with 1 teaspoon Essence
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 bread crumbs, seasoned with 1 teaspoon Essence
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 cup snipped chives
  • Remoulade Dipping Sauce:
  • 1 cup prepared or homemade mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons minced celery
  • 2 tablespoons minced green onions
  • 1 teaspoon minced shallots
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon creole mustard
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  • For remoulade: Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until incorporated. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside
  • For the celery root french fries: Lightly toss the celery root in the flour. Dip into the egg mixture, removing any excess. Turn into the bread crumbs, coating both sides completely. In a large saute pan, heat the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the celery root fries, carefully not to over- crowd the fries. Fry on one side until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Turn over and continue frying until done, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper lined plate. Spoon a small amount of the remoulade onto the plate and pile the fries in the center. Garnish with the Parmesan Cheese and chives.
