About the Dish:
Shrimp tempura is a popular Japanese dish that consists of battered and deep-fried shrimp. The shrimp is lightly seasoned and coated in a crispy tempura batter, resulting in a delicious and crunchy texture. It is often served as an appetizer or as part of a main course in combination with other dishes.
|All-purpose flour||1 cup|
|Ice water||1 cup|
|Vegetable oil||For frying|
- 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.
