Crispy Shrimp with Parsley Instructions

To season the shrimp:
  • On a plate, add the deveined shrimp, and season it with salt and white pepper on both sides.
To make the batter and combine:
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the cornstarch (or other types of starch), salt, baking soda (this will make the batter crispy), and baking powder (this will make the batter airy and puffy). Whisk.
  • Also add the egg white and cold club soda (this helps the batter to be extra airy, light, and crispy). Mix together.
  • Toss in the shrimp and parsley (or replace it with other herbs like cilantro, dill, or basil.) Combine.
To fry:
  • In a pot over high heat, pour the oil inside. Heat it to 325°F or 163°C.
  • Transfer the shrimp and parsley inside. Deep fry until crispy, about 3 minutes. Remove them and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
To serve:
  • In a small bowl, mix together the five-spice powder, white pepper, and salt. Whisk. Serve the seasoning on the side or toss it together with the crispy shrimp with parsley.
Notes about the batter:
  • If the batter is too thin, add another tablespoon of cornstarch to it. If the batter is too thick, add another tablespoon of cold club soda to it at a time.
