Baking Success Or Baking Mess


1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Fleischmann's® Corn Starch
1/2 to 2/3 cup cold water
1 teaspoon soy sauce
About 2-1/2 cups Mazola® Corn Oil
2 teaspoons Fleischmann's® Baking Powder
1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined (thawed, if frozen)


Combine flour and corn starch in a medium bowl. Gradually stir in 1/2 cup water and soy sauce until smooth. Stir in additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until batter is just thick enough to coat shrimp (about the consistency of very heavy cream).

Pour oil into 2-quart saucepan, filling no more than 1/3 full. Heat over medium heat to 350°F.

Stir 1 tablespoon of the hot oil into batter. Stir in baking powder.

Coat shrimp with batter. Carefully add shrimp, a few at a time to hot oil; fry 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
