Ingredients

  • 12 extra-large raw shrimp
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Ice water
  • 4 cups vegetabIe oil for deep frying, enough to submerge food
  • 1 sweet potato peeled and sliced on bias
  • 1 Japanese eggplant sliced
Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup tempura dipping sauce
  • 2 tablespoons warm water

Method

Peel shrimp, leaving tails intact. Cut 2 shallow slits across belly to keep shrimp straight while frying; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda, egg and 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the ice water. Whisk in remaining water, 1/4 cup (60 mL) at a time, to make thin batter. Place bowl in second bowl filled with ice water.

Pour enough oil into wok or Dutch oven to come about 2 inches (5 cm) up side; heat until deep-fryer thermometer registers 375°F (190°C).

A few pieces at a time, dip potato, eggplant and shrimp into batter; deep-fry until crispy and golden, shrimp are pink inside and vegetables are tender, about 3 minutes. (Potato will take longer.) Drain on paper towel–lined rack.

Dipping Sauce: Combine tempura sauce with water; serve with tempura.
