  5. 1 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

  7. 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Instructions
  1. For sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk together all ingredients. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes before serving.
  2. For fries: In a large saucepan, pour vegetable oil to a depth of 2 inches; heat over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 360°.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together cornmeal and next 3 ingredients. Whisk in 1 cup cold water and egg until smooth.
