10 large shrimp

¾ cup ice-cold water

3. To make batter, beat the egg and add ice-cold water and 1 cup of tempura flour into a mixing bowl. Mix until combined but still lumpy. Be careful not to over mix!
4. Set bowl into a larger bowl filled with ice to keep the batter cold.
5. To fry the shrimp, coat with the cold batter and carefully slide it into the hot oil.
6. Cook a batch of 3 shrimp at a time for about 2-3 minutes or until shrimp is fully cooked on the inside and lightly golden brown on the outside. For additional crispiness, lightly sprinkle some of the batter on the shrimp while it is frying.
8. Place on rack to drain excess oil.
