I always fry shrimp the way I grew up with it. Flour, eggwash/milk dip, flour again and fry. For this we always had potato salad, or cole slaw, maybe a cucumber salad, cocktail sauce, etc.
Would tempura fried shrimp be ok with the traditional (for me) sides? I've never even tasted tempura but I'd like to try it out during the christmas holidays at some point. I was just wondering if it would be just strange to not have asian accompaniments.
I'm thinking of doing this recipe:
That won't turn out with a long john silver's type batter will it?
