Spicy Tempura

I learned from experience that when making tempura, the shrimp should be seasoned with some spices first before dipping it into the batter. Some people seasoned the batter but for me I should rather seasoned the shrimp to taste better. We have this Japanese style tempura at home and every time I used it we were never satisfied with its taste since I always follow the package’s direction, fortunately I came up an idea of marinating the shrimp first with some spices before frying it and wow the result was so yummy inside and out.

500 g medium shrimps, peeled leaving the tails on
1 cup tempura batter mix
2/3 cup water
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper powder
¼ tsp. garlic powder
Cooking oil for deep frying

1. Combine salt, black pepper, garlic and pepper together. Seasoned peeled shrimp with the mixture and leave it stand for at least 20 minutes.
2. In a medium bowl, combine tempura batter mix with water, mix well.
3. Heat oil in pan, dip each shrimp on the batter mixture and fry until golden brown.
4. Drain on pepper towels. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
