  • Yield: ---

Ingredients:

  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup Milk

Marinate Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp fresh Ginger, crushed in press or grated
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 TbspLemon Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Sherry

Directions:

Mix honey, lemon juice, sherry and ginger together and marinate shrimp, halibut, or scallops for at least 15 minutes. Mix eggs, salt, garlic, flour, cornstarch, and milk to make a smooth batter. Fry dipped pieces in peanut oil until light brown.

Option: Cool fried pieces after frying, then refrigerate, if desired, and later redip in batter, refry until golden brown. Even crunchier, and great as appetizers for a party that you can prepare ahead and still serve hot at the last minute. It makes enough batter for 1 lb of shrimp, halibut, or scallops.
