  2. For quick fry bamboo shoots
  3. Put the bamboo slices on a paper towel and cover with another piece. Lightly press to remove excess water.
  4. In a bowl, add flour and salt and mix well.
  5. Put enough oil in a large pan to cover the bottom by about an inch. Turn the heat to high.
  6. Add bamboo shoots to the flour bowl and lightly toss until coated evenly (the layer of flour should be very thin).
  7. When the oil is very hot but not smoking (throw a little flour; if it sizzles right away, it’s ready), add bamboo shoots (do not crowd the pan as this will lower the oil temperature. You may need to do this in batches) and cook for 2 minutes, until they’re a light beige/brown color. Rest on paper towels and repeat until all the bamboo shoots have been quickly fried.
  8. Serve with miso mayo dip.
