Abita Battered Shrimp

Serves: 2 people

Recipe Ingredients

2 cups 220g / 7.8ozIce cubes
1 cup 198g / 7ozClub soda
6 oz 170gTurbo Dog - (dark Abita beer or any dark beer)
1 cup 62g / 2.2ozFlour - plus
1/4 cup 15g / 0.5ozFlour - for dredging
1 teaspoon 5mlSalt
8   Egg whites - beaten to soft peaks
3/4 lb 340g / 11ozLarge shrimp - shelled and deveined
  Oil - for deep frying
1 cup 237mlTartar sauce of your choice
  Parsley sprigs
  Lemon wedges

Recipe Instructions

Preheat fryer to 350 degrees or place enough oil in a heavy saute pan to come half way up the side of the pan.

Heat the oil until a fry thermometer registers 350 degrees. In a large bowl place the ice cubes, club soda, and beer, let it sit for 2 hours. Strain out any remaining ice cubes. Place the flour and salt in a medium bowl. While stirring gently, add enough of the beer mixture to the flour so that a thick batter is made. You want the batter thick enough to stick to the shrimp. Fold in the beaten egg whites.

Dredge the shrimp in the 1/4 cup of flour, shaking off excess flour and dip them into the batter. Deep fry the shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp and golden, drain on a towel, and serve with the tartar sauce, parsley, and lemon wedges.
