How to make it

  • Bater:
  • combine the egg and club soda (or water)
  • add the flour to the liquid and stir together with chopsticks, do not over mix; the batter should be a little lumpy
  • let rest 5 minutes
  • if too thick add water, just a little, and thin
  • Shrimp and Vegetables:
  • Prepare the oil for frying: pour oil into a wok or pot enough to fill a few inches
  • Peel the shrimp and keep tails ON!! cut the back to remove the poopvein
  • spread the shrimp flat with the tail towards then cut 2 vertical slits in the shrimps back without going all the way through (this prevents the shrimp from curling during the frying process) then flatten the shrimp with the flat side of knife being careful not to destroy the shrimp
  • if you don't care if your shrimp curl then forget that whole process and just peel (leaving the tail on) and clean - dip the shrimp in flour and let sit 5 minutes to assure good adhesion of the batter
  • prepare all the other vegetables
  • cook the vegetables in batches, meaning shrimp with shrimp and mushrooms with mushrooms and so on
  • fry until cooked through
  • remove from oil and drain on paper towels
  • Serve immediately with tentsuyu sauce
  • Tentsuyu Sauce:
  • combine all ingredients
  • bring to a boil, then remove from heat
  • serve on bowls for dipping
