A Crispy Crunchy and Light batter,This is my Personal Favorite, While working in a couple Chinese Reataurants in my day, I was always in the Kitchen Learning How they Made their Dishes. This is One I learned.
This can also be used on Raw Vegetables, and Onion Rings.

Note: Some Tempura batters made at home become "Soft and Soggy" after it reaches the Table. This is one that "Stays Crispy" and Light. I have tried many Tempura, until I learned this, I enjoy this one best of Any I have tried.
Note: cooking time is about 3 min per shrimp DO NOT OVERCOOK.
