Recipe Notes

  • This is supposed to be a spicy dish! If you don’t like too much spice/heat, use less of the Cajun seasoning, sriracha and sweet chili sauce.
  • This kind of spider isn’t a creepy bug! It’s a kitchen tool used to remove food from hot liquids. Its name comes from the spiderweb-like appearance of its basket.
  • If a child is making this recipe, parental supervision is needed after step two.
  • You will bread and fry the cauliflower in batches, not all at once.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl and set aside.
  2. Mix all wet ingredients in a separate bowl and set aside.
  3. Fill medium saucepot halfway with canola oil and heat on stove on medium until it reaches 365 degrees F (185 degrees Celsius). It should get to a high enough temperature in about 10 minutes.
  4. Take about 7 florets, dredge in dry mix, then wet mix, then again in dry mix.
  5. Use tongs to place the florets in the hot oil. (Do not drop the florets from high up because it will make the oil splatter.) Cook until golden brown.
  6. Use the spider to remove cauliflower from the oil and place on the baking tray lined with paper towels. (The paper towels will absorb the excess oil.)
  7. Once all frying is done, combine sauce ingredients in the third mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.
  8. Toss the florets in the sauce until they’re thoroughly covered.
