Tempura:
Pork:

Directions

Sauce:

Put all the liquids, sugar and jalapeno into a blender and mix well. Add the cilantro, parsley, basil and mint and pulse 5 to 6 times. Cooks Note: To pulse: the blender should be turned on to high speed, then turned off. Add the garlic and pulse 3 more times. Remove the sauce from the mixer to a bowl and let rest for 1 hour before usage if possible.

Tempura:

In mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together, blending well. Next, whisk in the egg, soda water, and vinegar. Keep the tempura cold until using, then stir again.

Pork:

In a mixing bowl, add the buttermilk and Cajun spice and whisk well. Add the pork and marinate for 20 to 30 minutes.

In a deep-fryer or heavy-bottomed pot, heat enough oil to come halfway up the sides of the pot, to 350 degrees F and the oven to 300 degrees F.

Remove the pork form the marinade and add it to the tempura batter. Remove the pork from the batter, 1 slice at a time, and carefully add to the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Cooking the pork should be done in 2 to 3 batches. Arrange the pork on a sheet pan and keep it warm in the preheated 300 degree F oven. After all the pork has been cooked, portion the pork onto serving plates and serve with the sauce.
