Tempura

(1 Votes)

Tempura is a fried Japanese favorite that can be re-created in your own home. It's fast and so tasty!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch, plus additional for dusting
  • 1/4 cup baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 cups cold water
  • Assorted vegetable, meat and/or seafood chunks (see Options)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/2 cup cornstarch, the baking powder, sugar, salt, and peppers; mix well. Add the cold water. Cover loosely and let mixture stand for 1 to 2 hours.
     
  2. In a deep skillet, heat 1 inch of oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Lightly dust your favorite vegetable, meat and/or seafood chunks with cornstarch then dip in the batter. Gently place in the hot oil and cook until golden, turning if necessary. Remove to a paper towel-lined platter and continue with additional items.
Options

Use broccoli and cauliflower florets, whole medium-sized mushrooms, carrot and zucchini slices, or chunks of chicken and shrimp – whatever your favorites are!

Husky Roasted Corn

Native Americans cooked their corn right in the husks over an open fire, and we think their idea is still best, 'cause it helps bring out flavors you can only get from roasting. We love making our Husky Roasted Corn right on the grill in the summer, and in our ovens when it's cooler out!
