Crispy and tasty shrimp!

Top Review by Yearbook Mom

I also use all cornstarch, but did everything else as stated. It is my families favorite shrimp now. My son even asked for it for his birthday meal instead of going out for seafood.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the cornstarch, salt, peppercorns and five-spice powder.
  2. Lightly whisk in the seltzer.
  3. Do not overmix- the batter should be a little lumpy and add shrimp.
  4. Allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Heat the vegetable oil to 375°.
  6. Fry shrimp until deep golden, about 2 minutes.
  7. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to rack or paper towels.
