 Ingredients List

  • -----------------------------------BATTER-----------------------------------
  • 4 tb Cornstarch
  • 1/4 c Flour
  • 1 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Egg white
  • 2 tb Salt
  • 1 1/2 lb Shrimp; peeled and deveined
  • 2 c Peanut oil, for deep-frying


1 1/2 tb Peanut oil
5 Dried chiles; halved
3 tb Finely sliced garlic
1 ts Salt
3 tb Sugar
1 ts White rice vinegar
1/2 c Water
1 ts Cornstarch; mixed with
1 ts Water

MIX THE BATTER INGREDIENTS in a medium-sized bowl until thick and smooth.
Let the batter sit, covered, for at least 30 minutes. Combine shrimp and
batter. Heat a wok or large deep skillet until hot and add the oil for
frying. When the oil is barely smoking, deep-fry the shrimp for 2 minutes
or until the batter is just firm. You should do this in several batches.
Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Heat a small
saucepan and when hot, add the oil, dried chiles and garlic. Stir for 30
seconds. Add remaining sauce ingredients and simmer for 2 minutes. Keep
warm. Reheat the oil in the wok until it is very hot, but not smoking.
Deep-fry the shrimp again until they are golden and crisp, about 2 minutes.
Remove and drain, place on a warm platter, drizzle with the sauce and serve
