Tempura Prawns | Crispy Japanese Battered Prawns | Ebi Tempura |
Tempura is the ever popular Japanese Batter Fried Seafood or Vegetable dish that can be served as starters. Tempura Prawns | Crispy Japanese Battered Prawns is without doubt the most popular. So easy to make. The batter is very light and yet so crisp. Tempura must be served immediately. I sometimes marinate the prawns in a little soy sauce and sesame oil first, which I think is not traditional. Key to making a good batter is that It must be very cold (add ice cubes) and it must have some lumps (not super smooth). Consistency, may be adjusted to personal taste though, I like my batter a little thinner. I added more liquid.
Salmon prepared the Teriyaki way is quite mouth watering and delicious. It contains, Mirin and Sake although in small quantities. I have reproduced the recipe without any of the alcohol, making it a non alcoholic Teriyaki Salmon.
