Directions

GETTING READY
1. In a small mixing bowl, combine self-rising flour and corn starch.
2. Pour ½ cup water and stir until batter is smooth. Add more water, a little at a time, if needed to get the consistency of batter that will coat the shrimp.
3. Stir warm oil into batter, and then add baking powder. Mix well.

MAKING
4. In a deep-fry pot, heat oil until a test shrimp sizzles.
5. Coat a few shrimp at a time with batter and put them gently into the hot oil. Deep fry shrimps until nice and golden.
6. Transfer to a tray lined with paper towel and allow it to drain. Repeat the process for remaining shrimps.

SERVING
7. Serve with seafood cocktail sauce and enjoy!
