Seafood Tempura
Added on Jan 25, 2022
1 pound seafood, such as shrimp, oysters, or fillet cut into chunks
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, more as necessary
1 quart vegetable oil
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup rice flour (or all-purpose flour)
1 large egg yolk
1 cup cold sparkling water
1 cup tempura dipping sauce

Gather the ingredients. Season the seafood with salt and set it aside. Lay out a paper towel under a rack to place the fried seafood on. Heat the oil to 370 F over medium to medium-high heat in a deep fryer or a deep, heavy pot. If possible, attach the thermometer to the side. Mix the baking soda, 1/8 teaspoon of salt, cornstarch, and flour in a bowl until fully incorporated. When the oil is hot, whisk the egg yolk and the sparkling water together. Pour the egg yolk mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients, mixing well. The consistency of the batter should be like melted ice cream. Rapidly dip the seafood into the thin batter, shake it off a bit, and drop it into the oil. Do this in batches so the oil temperature does not drop too far. Do not crowd the pot. Fry the seafood for 2 to 4 minutes. When you hear the roiling, popping, and sizzling subsiding, remove the seafood immediately and lay it on the paper toweled rack to drain oil. Serve immediately with dipping sauce and enjoy.
