Batter For Frying Recipe

Step 1

Mix eggs, salt, garlic, flour, cornstarch, and milk to make a smooth batter. Mix honey, lemon juice, sherry and ginger together and marinate shrimp (split in back), lobster (cut in cubes), chicken (cut in pieces 1" x 2"), or thin-sliced pork for at least 15 minutes. Fry dipped pieces in Peanut Oil until light brown.

OPTION: Cool fried pieces after frying, then refrigerate, if desired, and later redip in batter, refry until golden brown. Even crunchier, and great as appetizers for a party that you can prepare ahead and still serve HOT at the last minute!
