  • 20 Jumbo Shrimps thawed (recommended: black tiger shrimp)
  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • Dried parsley flakes optional garnish

Shrimp batter:

Mayo sauce:


  • In a bowl, add potato starch, cake flour, salt and whisk together. Then pour in water and whisk again until combined. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, whisk together Mayo sauce ingredients (see listed above) until well combined. Set aside.
  • If needed, peel and devein shrimp. Pat the peeled shrimp dry and add shrimp to batter. Mix together.
  • In a large wok or pot set over medium heat, add vegetable oil. Make sure oil reaches 350 F or dip a wooden chopstick and look for bubbles at the tip. Once the oil is hot, carefully add half of the battered shrimp. Do not overcrowd the oil.
  • Fry shrimp until they float and are pink through out, about 2-3 minutes. Flip shrimp halfway through frying. If you’d like them extra crispy, drizzle a teaspoon of the batter per each piece of shrimp as it fries (optional).
  • Remove the shrimp and place onto cooling rack to allow excess oil to drip off. If you don’t own a cooling rack, place fried shrimp on a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat the above process for second batch.
  • Pour the mayo sauce over fried shrimp and gently mix. Optional: garnish with dried parsley flakes. Enjoy!
