How to make it

  • Heat oil to 365 degrees...
  • After oil comes up to appoximately the correct temperature, test it by frying one shrimp...
  • One shrimp should take about 2-3 minutes to be golden brown...
  • Adjust heat accordingly...
  • Prepare batter by stirring all the dry ingredients together until mixed well...
  • Add the seltzer water in a thin stream in the center, mixing with a whisk to avoid lumps...
  • Stir until smooth but do not overbeat...
  • The batter should be similar in consistency to pancake batter...
  • *Note: If you have a tendency to make tough tempura, use cake flour instead of all-purpose flour...
  • Dip the shrimp in the batter, drain for 10 seconds and drop in hot oil...
  • Remove when golden brown, season to taste, drain on paper towels, and serve with cocktail sauce or tartar sauce for dipping...
  • *Onion Rings*
  • You can use this same batter to make great onion rings with vidalia onions sliced 1/2 inch thick...
  • Sprinkle with onion powder before they cool...
  • *Note: If you can't find the Corn Meal Mix at your store, substitute fine corn meal (1/3 cup), 2 tablespoons of dry buttermilk powder, and a half teaspoon baking powder and continue to use the other ingredients listed above...
