Transcript:Beer Battered Shrimp Recipe

Hi, I am Chef Roblé for About.com. Today we’re going to learn how to make beer battered shrimp.

Beer Battered Shrimp Ingredients

And here are our ingredients:
  • 3 cups of flour separated into 2 cups and one cup
  • 1 tablespoon of Old Bay or your favorite salted seasoning
  • One egg separated into yolk and white
  • 1 pound of shrimp. Just make sure that you get the kind that are shelled and
  • deveined. These come already clean.
  • 3 cups of light beer

Make Batter

Combine 2 cups of flour, the egg yolk and half of your Old Bay. Add in the beer. You want to risk that together. Don’t whisk vigorously.

Create Seasoning Mix

Now, in a nice large plastic Ziploc bag. We are going to add our one cup of flour and the rest of our seasoning mix. Right into the bag, shake it around a little bit. And now we’re going to add our shrimp into the mix and flour our shrimp. Close the top and shake it around until they’re fully coated.

Heat Oil

Set up one pot for frying with canola oil. You can also use corn or vegetable oil. Bring your oil up to 350° for frying. Now, right before we fry you want to take the egg whites write in a bowl and whip them up until they become nice and foamy. Just whip them until they’re nice and foamy and add them right into the batter. This is going to make your shrimp nice and fluffy.

Cooking the Shrimp

Right out of the bag we had the floured oshrimp. Just get this right into the bag. Right up until where the tale starts. Repeat this over and over. We are going to cook these in batches of five. We are going to let them cook for about 60 seconds.

Allow Shrimp to Drain

Just take them right out. Right onto a nice cookie sheet with a wire rack. If you don’t have one of these you can take a plate and put some paper towels on it to soak up the extra grease. And here are your beer battered shrimp. You can serve them with hot sauce, cocktail sauce or whatever kind of sauce you like.
