Asian Ginger Shrimp

Ingredients

8 Unshelled raw jumbo shrimp, thawed if frozen
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Corn oil
1/4 cup Water
1 piece ginger root, peeled, grated (1")
1 Garlic clove, crushed
1 teaspoon Chili sauce
1 Green onion daisy

Preparation

1
Shell shrimp, leaving tail shells on. Make a small incision along spines.
2
Remove black spinal cord from shrimp.
3
In a bowl, combine flour, salt, corn oil and water. Stir in ginger, garlic and chili sauce and beat well. Stiffly whisk egg white, then gently fold into batter until evenly combined.
4
Half fill a deep-fat fryer or saucepan with oil; heat to 375'F. (190'C.) or until a 1/2" cube of day-old bread browns in 40 seconds. Hold each shrimp by its tail and dip into batter, then lower into hot oil. Fry 3 minutes or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Garnish with green onion daisy and bell pepper strips and serve hot.
