Deep Fried Shrimp Recipe

This deep-fried shrimp recipe is one of the most popular dishes in this country. This is the first line of an email l received from my friend who moved to the United States to enhance his chef experience. I am not surprised, because we have tested this recipe and the deep-friend shrimp are flavorful, crisp, and tenderer, and not as soggy as other deep-fried shrimp recipes I have tried.

The secret to these perfectly crisp fried shrimps lies in the beer batter that encloses the shrimp in a snug-fitting surround. The beer yeast creates a leavening effect on the batter. One suggestion we have is that you prepare the beer batter well in advance, at least 1 hour. It allows the gluten in the flour to relax and the starch grains to swell, making the batter crispier.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Rinse the shrimp thoroughly under cold running water and dry them on paper towels. Use kitchen scissors to cut along the curved back of the shell, then break away the shell using your fiingers. Remove the dar vein running along the back of the shirimp. Rinse the shrimp again, and leave to dry on paper towel.
  2. Prepare the Batter
    In a mixing bowl, add the flower, beer, egg yolks, oilm salt and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper. Stir with a wire whisk until well combined and free of lumps. Cover with plastic wrat and leave to stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour.
  3. In a seperate bowl beat the egg whites until stiff and fold them into the batter and mix well.
  4. Prepare the Shrimp
    Preheat the oven to 250°F (120°C) and heat the frying oil over moderate heat in a large frying.
  5. Prepare a baking tray by lining it with baking paper.
  6. Fry the shrimps in batches. To do so, use a ladle spoon to scoop up spoonfuls of shrimp at a time, then dip the shrimps in the beer batter until completely coated. Slowly lower the ladle spoon into the hot oil and cook the shrimp for 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown. Tranfer to the prepared baking tray and keep warm in the preheated oven. Repeat until the remaining shrimp are cooked. Serve at once. Enjoy!
