Oriental Ginger Shrimp Recipe

Step 1

Shell shrimp, leaving tail shells on. Make a small incision along spines. Remove black spinal cord from shrimp.

Step 2

In a bowl, combine flour, salt, corn oil and water. Stir in ginger, garlic and chili sauce and beat well. Stiffly whisk egg white, then gently fold into batter until evenly combined.

Step 3

Half fill a deep-fat fryer or saucepan with oil; heat to 375''F. (190''C. ) or until a 1/2" cube of day-old bread browns in 40 seconds. Hold each shrimp by its tail and dip into batter, then lower into hot oil. Fry 3 minutes or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Garnish with green onion daisy and bell pepper strips and serve hot.
