Beer Battered Shrimp


At a glance

10 ounces  flour
1/2 teaspoon  baking powder
1 large egg, separated
8 ounces Michelob Ultra Beer
Vegetable oil as needed, heated to 350 degrees
3 pounds shrimp, peeled
Flour as needed


Whisk together the flour and baking powder.  Add the egg yolk and beer all
at once, and whisk until combined into a batter.  Chill until use.  Just
before service, whisk the egg white into soft peaks, and then fold into
the chilled batter. Dip the shrimp into flour, then into batter, then
lower the shrimp into the heated oil to deep fry 3-4 minutes or until
golden brown and cooked through.
