Dip one sprig of fresh herbs at a time and then the sliced jalapeños in the egg white and the flour making sure the egg white and the flour get all over the herbs and jalapeños. Then, drop them into the hot oil. Cook them flipping often until they are golden brown. Place on paper towels to catch oil and sprinkle with salt and lime juice.
