Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


2 eggs, beaten
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder, or fresh garlic, finely minced
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup milk

1 tbsp honey
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp sherry
1 tsp ginger, fresh, put thru garlic press

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! It makes enough batter for 1 lb. of Shrimp, Lobster Meat, Chicken or Pork.
