How to make it

  • Prepare the seafood, cut into even sized pieces if necessary, wash and dry well. The prawns and scallops can be left whole if they are not too large.
  • Heat the deep fryer to 190C, 375F.
  • Place the flours, baking powder and water in a large mixing bowl, season with plenty of salt and black pepper and mix until blended. Do not over mix: there should still little lumps of flour left as this adds to the texture of the finished tempura.
  • Coat the seafood pieces with a little flour then dip into the batter.
  • Deep fry in batches, for 2-3 minutes only until lightly golden brown and crispy. Drain on kitchen paper. Serve immediately.
  • Makes 16fl.oz.

    This similar to how I make it only I use cornstarch which gives it a great crunch. Thanks for your recipe. I have never used baking powder and I will have to try it.
