Crispy and delicious entree prawns that are marinated in mirin (rice wine) before being dipped in a homemade batter then deep fried. This Japanese batter also works great on fresh veggies.
Very good Sherry. I needed to add more water and I replaced the shortening with a bit of sesame oil. I also threw some toasted sesame seeds into the batter. We used teriyaki sauce with a dash of sesame oil for our dipping sauce. Family was thrilled!! - 28 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Excellent batter, I didn't marinate them though and they were fabulous. I did some research online and found these tips: pat the shrimp dry and lightly dust them with flour to help the batter adhere. - 15 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
