Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 2

2 Cup(s) Ice Cubes
1 Cup(s) Club soda
6 Ounce(s) Turbo Dog -, dark Abita
or any dark beer
1 Cup(s) Flour, plus
1/4 Cup(s) Flour, for dredging
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
8 Egg whites, beaten to soft
3/4 Pound(s) Large shrimp, shelled and
Oil, for deep frying
=== GARNISH ===
1 Cup(s) Tartar sauce of your choice
Parsley sprigs
Lemon wedges
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. This recipe yields 2 servings. Recipe Source: ESSENCE OF
