Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix rice wine and salt. Place shrimp into the mixture. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator at least 20 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in deep-fryer or large wok to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together all-purpose flour, ice water, cornstarch, egg yolk, salt, white sugar, shortening and baking powder.
  4. One at a time, dip shrimp into the flour mixture to coat. Carefully place a few shrimp at a time in the hot oil. Deep fry until golden brown on all sides, about 1 1/2 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove from oil. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Very good Sherry. I needed to add more water and I replaced the shortening with a bit of sesame oil. I also threw some toasted sesame seeds into the batter. We used teriyaki sauce with a dash of sesame oil for our dipping sauce. Family was thrilled!!

Excellent batter, I didn't marinate them though and they were fabulous. I did some research online and found these tips: pat the shrimp dry and lightly dust them with flour to help the batter adhere.
