Batter Fried Shrimp (Chinese style)

Chinese batter fried shrimp, is more of an appetizer which my kids love to munch on. Marinated shrimp is dipped in batter and deep fried.....oh yum!!

Shrimps cook really fast and hence there is no precooking, more or less a quick appetizer where you just dip and fry....pretty easy! huh!

While growing up, amma used to make this, and I have seen her creaming the egg whites to add into the batter and so I also do the does give a crispy, spongy yumminess!! So try that little tip from my mom, when you make.

I created this recipe with Ching's Secret's product out of my love for their authentic Chinese flavor. Have you tried Spicy Shrimp Noodles....yet??
