I have not made tempura for a long time. The next time I do, I will for sure be using a Mexican Beer! How about you?

George Duran’s  Mexican Beer Battered Tempura Recipe

Ingredients
·         1 bottle of cold Mexican beer, such as Corona or Dos Equis
·         1 cup of flour, plus more for flouring
·         1 teaspoon of salt
·         6 large raw shrimp
·         1 small sweet potato
·         1 small red pepper
·         6 asparagus spears
·         1.5 quarts vegetable oil for frying
·         Tempura sauce or dumpling sauce for dipping

Preparation
1.       In a bowl, mix 1 cup of beer into the flour. Then add enough beer until the batter is smooth and lightly coats a spoon. Mix in the salt.
2.       Make several shallow cuts across the inside curve of each shrimp. Press the shrimp gently to help prevent curling.
3.       Flour the vegetable pieces and the shrimp, and then set them aside.
4.       Heat oil in the IMUSA Non-Stick Wok (found at Target) until it reaches 375° F.
5.       Working in small batches, dredge each vegetable piece until they are completely coated and place in IMUSA wok for 2-3 minutes, turning often, until golden. Then, place each piece on the drip tray. Dredge the shrimp last and fry the pieces for 3 minutes until golden brown.
6.       Serve the tempura with dipping sauce.
7.       Note: You may use many other sliced vegetables for this recipe including mushrooms, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots and turnips.
