TO DRINK: Brunia Sauvignon Blanc 2009, a cool-climate wine with lovely minerality, fruit and acidity, which will give the rocket a marvellous edge.
Deep-fried wild rocket
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 300ml iced soda water
- 120g (1 cup) cake flour
- oil, for deep-frying
- 300g wild rocket
- Maldon salt, to serve
For the batter, combine the egg, soda water and flour and mix to form a smooth-running batter.
Heat the oil until very hot. Dip small batches of rocket into the batter, then carefully deep-fry for a minute and drain on paper towel. Repeat until all the rocket is used.
Serve the rocket sprinkled with the salt.
