Personally I think that would stand up in any restaurant as a bloody fine looking dish!

Spam is actually quite a versatile ‘meat’. Because it is firm, you can do so much with it, and actually as an ingredient it is really quite good fun. You may have seen my other Spam recipes;

The kids love Spam too, because it salty. But could they imagine it covered in batter and deep fried? HEAVEN. My Deep Fried Spam with Dips, are surely that!

Folks here we go with how to make this cracking little beer snack dish above, my Deep Fried Spam with Dips. Firstly let’s get the dips done.

Dip #1

In a small dipping bowl mix;

  • 3 tablespoons of tomato sauce;
  • 3 tablespoons of Japanese (or normal) mayonnaise; and
  • A good squeeze of half a lemon.

Dip #2

In a small dipping bowl mix;

  • 2 tablespoons soya sauce;
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar;
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce;
  • A good squeeze of half a lemon; and
  • Sprinkle with chilli flakes.

Now to the deep fried spam itself – we need that for Deep Fried Spam with Dips right? It’s so simple, but I’ll even A,B,C it for you.

Take 3 bowls, and into;

  1. #1 = 2 beaten eggs;
  2. #2 = 2 cups of seasoned flour (sprinkle in some sea salt and cracked black pepper);
  3. #3 = 5-6 finely crushed Digestive biscuits (0r other biscuit).

Here we go;

  • Take a tin of Spam and slice it very thin, and then cut in half;
  • Dip a piece in Bowl #1, then Bowl #2 to lightly cover with flour, set aside and repeat;
  • When half the tin of Spam is used do this;
  • Dip a piece in Bowl #1, then Bowl #2 to lightly cover with flour, then back in to Bowl #2, then in to Bowl #3 to coat in crushed biscuit, set aside and repeat;
  • Let these sit for 5 minutes or so;
  • Take a wok and add about 2″ of cooking oil, and bring to 180 degrees; and
  • Fry these bad boys off until golden brown – done!!!

Pop these on to some kitchen paper to drain off the excess oil, and serve with the dips. Incredible little dish. Oh yes and just one thing folks it is absolutely MANDATORY to serve a beer with my Deep Fried Spam with Dips – ENJOY!!!
