Shelled shrimps are marinated in lemon juice and dipped in a batter before deep frying. This style of cooking shrimp nearly resembles the Japanese tempura and shrimp croquettes; however, some ingredients and preparation steps vary.
  Shrimp 1 Pound, peeled and deveined
  Lemon 1
  Flour 8 Tablespoon
  Cornstarch 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Eggs 2
  Fresh milk 1 Tablespoon
  Cooking oil 3 Cup (48 tbs)

1. Marinate the shrimp in lemon juice for 30 minutes.
2. Combine flour, cornstarch, and salt in a mixing bowl then mix well.
3. Add the eggs and milk stir until all the ingredients are well distributed.
4. Heat a pan and pour-in the cooking oil.
5. When the oil is hot enough, dip a piece of shrimp in the batter (leave the tail uncovered) then deep-fry until the color of the outer part turns dark yellow and the texture becomes crispy.
6. Remove from the pan or fryer then place in a plate with paper towel (this will absorb excess oil).
7. Serve with sweet and sour sauce. Share and enjoy!
