Soda Batter Fried Shrimp

Wednesday Feb 16, 2011

I wanted to eat some good beer battered shrimp.  However, as many of you know I don’t drink alcoholic beverages. So, I had no beer at home to make the batter.  I did however have some club soda (which helped me a lot with pregnancy nausea by the way, but that is a topic for another day).  I used club soda instead and it turned out delicious! Here it is:

12 medium – large size shrimp (uncooked)

salt and pepper

For the batter

1 yolk

1/4 c club soda

1/4 c flour

1/4 t salt

1/4 t baking powder

Dash cayenne pepper

Dry shrimp using a paper towel. Salt and pepper both sides.  Dip each shrimp on the soda batter.

Fry them in a frying pan with at least 1-2 inches of oil.  It will take about 2 minutes each side on medium heat.
