Shrimp Tempura is the perfect Japanese appetizer made with a light batter made and fried super crisp in just 15 minutes.
Easy quick Asian appetizers are a fun addition to your favorite takeout copycat meals including Crab Rangoon and Panda Express Cream Cheese Rangoon, dipping them in Sweet and Sour Sauce.
Shrimp Tempura is one of the Japanese recipes that can seem really intimidating because it needs to be so light and crispy to be enjoyed. The idea of frying food in generally can be scary, but using a cold batter that isn’t heavy?
YES, this tempura recipe is so easy I promise you it won’t scare you away. We use regular flour in addition to corn starch to make the tempura batter. Some people add ice water to the mixture but I use club soda to create a lighter texture.
Looking for a good dipping sauce for your tempura? I don’t like dipping tempura in soy sauce, the flavor is too strong.
