My favorite thing in the world to eat is shrimp. Any way. Any time. Shrimp. Tonight I made Shrimp Tempura. Those light, crispy, delicious little things that transport you back to the old Benihana days. I used a commercially available mix, but the recipe here is much more to my taste. Check it out.
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
1 1/2 Cups Ice Cold Club Soda
Heat peanut oil, or some other flavor neutral oil, to 325 degrees. Dip seafood, vegetables, etc in the batter and shake off excess. Drop carefully into oil. Deep fry until it floats. Turn once or twice. It will not brown significantly. Do not overcook. Drain on absorbent towels. Serve immediately.
