Category: Shellfish

 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Ice cubes
  • 1 c Club soda
  • 6 oz Turbo Dog -; (dark Abita
  • -beer)
  • (or any dark beer)
  • 1 c Flour; plus
  • 1/4 c Flour; for dredging
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 8 Egg whites; beaten to soft
  • -peaks
  • 3/4 lb Large shrimp; shelled and
  • -deveined
  • Oil; for deep frying
  • === GARNISH ===
  • 1 c Tartar sauce of your choice
  • Parsley sprigs
  • Lemon wedges


Preheat fryer to 350 degrees or place enough oil in a heavy saute pan to
come half way up the side of the pan. Heat the oil until a fry thermometer
registers 350 degrees. In a large bowl place the ice cubes, club soda, and
beer, let it sit for 2 hours. Strain out any remaining ice cubes. Place the
flour and salt in a medium bowl. While stirring gently, add enough of the
beer mixture to the flour so that a thick batter is made. You want the
batter thick enough to stick to the shrimp. Fold in the beaten egg whites.

Dredge the shrimp in the 1/4 cup of flour, shaking off excess flour and dip
them into the batter. Deep fry the shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp
and golden, drain on a towel, and serve with the tartar sauce, parsley, and
lemon wedges.
