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!

You will need (over 200mL of tempura):
♥ 100g flour
♥ 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
♥ 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (or baking soda)
♥ 2 pinch of salt
♥ 1 tablespoon soy sauce
♥ 1 egg yellow
♥ lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
♥ a bit less than 200mL of cold water
♥ 1/2 teaspoon hot chilli paste/puree (or more or less- depending on how hot you like it!)
♥ oil for frying
♥ cooked shrimps
♥ spicy sauce
1. In a measuring cup (at least 200mL) mix: chili paste, lemon juice and soy sauce. Add cold water to have 200mL liquid.
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.
