I almost boiled the cauliflower in some water beforehand because I honestly didn't expect it to get done enough in the 2-4 minutes in the fryer but I didn't and they came out great as written...

Made it just as stated in the recipe. However I didn't make the lemon sauce! They were delicious ! And Yes I will make them again.
