US Metric

10 Large or jumbo shrimp (if frozen need to thaw, the bigger the shrimp the better)

3/4 Cup flour
½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
1 egg yolk
iced water

Corn starch to dust
Oil for deep frying

Tentsuyu (Dipping Sauce for Tempura)
1/3 cup dashi (or 1/3 cup water + ½ tsp. Hondashi)
3    Tbsp. Aloha shoyu
2    Tbsp. sake
2    tsp. sugar
1    inch daikon, grated and squeeze liquid out
shichimi (Japanese 7 flavor chili pepper)

Cooking Process:

1. Prepare shrimp.  Please read step-by-step pictures and explanations of How To Prepare Shrimp for Shrimp Tempura and Ebi Fry.
2. You can start heating the oil when you are almost done with cleaning shrimp.  You want to bring the oil to (338F).  You can check the temperature with chopsticks or with a thermometer.  When you see small bubbles around chopsticks, it’s pretty much ready for deep frying.  If you want to read more about deep frying method, please read How To Deep Fry Food.
3. When oil is getting close to 170C (338F), start preparing batter.  Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl.
4. Beat egg yolk gently and add iced water and 2 ice cubes.  It’s important to keep the batter icy cold at all time.  The crispiness of Tempura comes from the temperature difference between oil and batter.
5. Pour the egg mixture into flour mixture.  Using chopsticks, mix but only circulate around the bowl 10 times.  You want to leave some of the flour unmixed and clunky.  The key here is not to produce gluten in order to have crispy tempura.
6. Sift some corn starch on top of shrimps.
7. When oil is 170C (338F), dip shrimp in batter several times, making sure shrimp is completely covered by the batter and start deep frying.
8. Deep fry for about 2-3 minutes or so (depending on how many shrimps you deep fry at the same time and oil temperature), and after it’s cooked, place the shrimp on a wire rack (paper towel is okay but try to place it vertically) to get rid of extra oil.  Keep in mind the more shrimp you have in the pot the cooler the oil temperature will be.

My trick for restaurant style skin is to pour extra batter on top of the shrimp after it’s been deep frying for about 5-7 seconds.  You can use a spoon to do this but DO NOT drop the ice cube in the oil or else it’ll result in possible accidents.
