This is a continuation to the previous blog SHRIMP ROLL (SHRIMP OR PRAWN, SHITAKE MUSHROOMS, SHISO LEAVES
Part II of the Saturday dinner

These "Spider" Tempura was an after thought side dish. If you know me, you'll be surprised if i told you that i threw away the shrimp heads and shells. Nope, i made shrimp stock out of the shrimp shells including the heads. But this time i made some tempura using the heads aka "Spider" coz that's what they call it. Well, i'm sure you guys know why, i just don't want to elaborate and explain further!
I make my own batter, it's a combination of flour and cornstarch, water and S&P. I mixed them until i achieve a pancake consistency. Deep the shrimp heads into the batter then deep fry.
