Gradually add to flour mixture stirring to form a smooth paste, or use1cup of tempura mix prepared according to package directions.)
Hold shrimps by the tail, dip in batter and deep fry a few pieces at a time 2-3 minutes or until golden grown. Drain on paper towels
Keep warm in a 250 degree F oven while frying the rest. Serve with sweet and sour sauce.
To do this in squid it's almost the same instructions, but squid needs to be wash well, remove the heads, tentacles, diamonds and skin and cut the flesh into 1/2 inch squares then pat dry. Mix with salt, and peppers no lemon juice and set aside, and follow the same procedure.
(This is a proven very good appetizer on my parties, (beware it's hard work)! but it's really delicious and mouth watering).
