Chinese Batter Fried Shrimp

Made with Maizenaku



  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup maizenaku
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup cold water
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • About 2-1/2 cups Corn Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined (thawed, if frozen)


  1. Combine flour and maizenaku in a medium bowl. Gradually stir in 1/2 cup water and soy sauce until smooth. Stir in additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until batter is just thick enough to coat shrimp (about the consistency of very heavy cream).
  2. Pour oil into 2-quart saucepan, filling no more than 1/3 full. Heat over medium heat to 350°F.
  3. Stir 1 tablespoon of the hot oil into batter. Stir in baking powder.
  4. Coat shrimp with batter. Carefully add shrimp, a few at a time to hot oil; fry 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
