(The best) Tempura Shrimp

This is the best tempura shrimp I had. Extremely crunchy but light. You can serve those with a spicy sauce at a dinner party or for a movie night with friends! :)

♥  2 pinch of salt
♥  1 tablespoon soy sauce

♥  lemon juice from 1/2 lemon

♥  1/2 teaspoon hot chilli paste/puree (or more or less- depending on how hot you like it!)

2. In another bowl (I use a 0.5L cup) mix flour, cornstarch, baking powder and egg yellow. Then slowly add the liquid ingredients while stirring all the time. You should get a pancake- like dough.

3. Peel the shrimps (leave the tail) and dip them in the tempura batter. Fry on hot oil around 1min on each side.
