- 2 cups ice cubes
- 1 cup club soda
- 6 ounces Turbodog - dark Abita beer, or any dark beer
- 1 cup flour, plus 1/4 cup, for dredging
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 egg whites, beaten to soft peaks
- 3/4 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined
- Oil, for deep frying
- 1 cup Tartar Sauce of your choice
- Parsley sprigs
- Lemon wedges
Preheat fryer to 350 degrees or place enough oil in a heavy saute pan to come half way up the side of the pan. Heat the oil until a fry thermometer registers 350 degrees. In a large bowl place the ice cubes, club soda, and beer, let it sit for 2 hours. Strain out any remaining ice cubes. Place the flour and salt in a medium bowl. While stirring gently, add enough of the beer mixture to the flour so that a thick batter is made. You want the batter thick enough to stick to the shrimp. Fold in the beaten egg whites. Dredge the shrimp in the 1/4 cup of flour, shaking off excess flour and dip them into the batter. Deep fry the shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp and golden, drain on a towel, and serve with the Tartar Sauce, parsley, and lemon wedges.
