What Is Tempura?



Tempura is a Japanese dish usually consisting of seafood or vegetables that have been battered and deep fried.


The dish was influenced by fritter-cooking techniques introduced by Portuguese residing in Nagasaki in the 16th century, and the name "tempura" relates to that origin.

Deep Fried



I use a heavy wok pan or cast iron skillet with around 3 inches of oil.


Of course,  if you are lucky enough to own a deep fryer, use it to the manufacturer suggestions.


Heat the oil to medium-high heat, fry and use a metal strainer to remove them.


Blot them on paper towels to retrieve the oil.


The shrimp and anything else you fry these in will stay crispy and very light in color.


They do cook fast so watch them carefully.
