Ingredient Quantity
Shrimp 1 pound
All-purpose flour 1 cup
Cornstarch 1/2 cup
Ice water 1 cup
Egg 1
Salt 1/2 teaspoon
Vegetable oil For frying

Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cornstarch, and salt. Gradually add the ice water while whisking until the batter is smooth and thin.
  • Step 2: In a separate bowl, beat the egg until frothy. Dip each shrimp into the beaten egg, then coat it with the tempura batter.
  • Step 3: Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a large pot to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Carefully drop the battered shrimp into the hot oil and fry them until they turn golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Step 4: Remove the shrimp from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil. Serve the shrimp tempura immediately with a dipping sauce of your choice.
