Tempura shrimp recipe

This is my take on tempura fried shrimp for inside sushi rolls, the original tempura shrimp recipe is a light batter that’s very airy when fried and its nice but it always seemed a little bland to me, So I made it slightly more to my liking tempura recipe by marinating the shrimp before cooking it, the marinade accentuates the shrimp taste while the thicker batter with Japanese bread crumbs “Panko” make a very crispy outer shell.

You can watch the video above or read the full recipe in the tabs below.

Ingredients :

  • shrimp (peel everything except for the tail)
  • tempura better mix
  • cold water
  • fish sauce
  • soya sauce
  • sesame seed oil
  • Japanese bread crumbs Panko

utensils :


where to cut a shrimp for tempuraStep 1 . Peel the shrimp but leave the tail attached, then make 3 small cuts one in the middle and one on each side, this prevents the shrimp from curling up when you cook it.

Marinade the shrimp in :

– 2 Tbsp fish sauce (made of anchovies)
– 1 tsp soya sauce
– 1 tsp thick teriyaki sauce
– 1 tsp sesame seed oil
– 3 cloves crushed garlic

leave the shrimp to absorb the marinade juices for at least 2 hours.

If you are not shore just cut one in half a check the shrimp is not raw inside.

You can eat these delicious tempura shrimp on their own, if so I would highly recommend adding okonomiyaki dipping sauce.

Or you can add these to a sushi roll recipe like the pink salmon sushi roll recipe.
