Shrimp Tempura Recipe


  • 1 Pound Large Shrimps or Prawns, shells removed, tails intact


  • 1/2 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 cup ICE COLD Water


  • 2 cups Panko breadcrumbs or any Dried Breadcrumbs
  • Cooking Oil for Frying


  • 1/2 cup Light Sodium or Regular Soy Sauce
  • Wasabi or Japanese Horseradish

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Mix together the batter ingredients and place inside the refrigerator while the shrimps are being prepped.
  2. Slit the underside of the shrimps at an angle to make them straight. Set aside.
  3. Take out the batter mix from the refrigerator and dip each shrimp, then dredge in the breadcrumbs. Repeat for all the shrimps before you start frying.
  4. Heat up the cooking oil using medium low heat and drop the shrimps one by one without crowding them in the oil.
  5. Cook until golden brown about 3-4 minutes, then set on a paper towel to drain excess oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve with the dipping sauce.
