Why I Love This Recipe

This easy-to-make, light and crispy tempura can be enjoyed alone or as a filling for a variety of sushi rolls.

Ingredients You'll Need

12 large shrimp, shelled and deveined
8 shiitake mushrooms
8 broccoli heads
1 small eggplant, sliced into 8 bite-size pieces
1 green or red pepper, quartered
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 egg
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2½ cups ice water
6 cups vegetable oil
3 tablespoons sesame oil


Flatten the shrimp by making several cuts across the inside curve of each shrimp and gently stretch the shrimp flat on a cutting board.

Dredge all vegetables in a small amount of flour and place on a plate.

In a large saucepan, heat 4 inches of oil to 325°F.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, egg, baking powder and salt.

Gently whisk in 2½ cups ice water, mixing until ingredients are moistened. Lumps will form. Lumps in the mixture are preferable.

Using chopsticks (or tongs) dip the shrimp and vegetables into the batter and fry, turning occasionally until golden or for about 2 minutes.

Transfer shrimp and vegetables to paper towels to drain. Always remove any residual batter from oil before adding the next batch of shrimp or vegetables. Always ensure oil temperature remains at 325°F.
