Easy to cook and delicious Shrimp Tempura.

Shrimp Tempura is a Japanese dish consisting of shrimp that is breaded and deep-fried to a crispy, golden-brown perfection. Shrimp Tempura is a variation of tempura, a popular Japanese cooking technique where ingredients are coated in a light batter and fried until they are crisp and tender. Large shrimp, such as tiger shrimp or prawns, are cleaned and slashed to create a straight shape, and also marinated in special seasonings. Then, the shrimp are coated in a mixture of dry and wet batter to create a crisp skin layer. The breaded shrimp are deep-fried in hot oil until they become crispy and turn a golden color. The frying process is relatively quick to ensure that the shrimp remain tender and juicy inside. Shrimp Tempura is a popular dish in Japanese cuisine and is enjoyed as an appetizer or a main course in many Japanese restaurants. Its delicious combination of crispy outer coating and succulent shrimp inside makes it a favorite among seafood lovers and fans of fried dishes.
