  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine the batter ingredients, and whisk. Add the shrimp and mix well until coated.

 

  • Heat oil in a large pot and fry the shrimp for about 1-2 minutes. To make sure the oil is at the right temperature, first test it by adding a bit of the batter to the oil. If it sizzles, it means the oil is at the right temperature. Fry only 2 or 3 shrimp at a time in order to maintain the temperature of the oil.
