Lemon Shrimp - Lemon Garlic Shrimp Recipe Cooking Process

1.To prepare the Lemon Sauce, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, stock, and soy sauce in a medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat, until the sugar is completely dissolved and the sauce comes to a boil, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover the pan, and set it aside.

2.To prepare the shrimp, pour the oil into a large saucepan at least 4 inches deep and 10 inches in diameter; the oil should be at least 11⁄2 inches deep but reach no more than halfway up the sides of the pan. Alternatively, fill an electric deep fryer with oil according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you are using a pan, clip a deep-frying thermometer to the inside and place the pan over medium heat. Heat the oil to 375°F. Adjust the heat to maintain that temperature while you prepare the shrimp. If you’re using an electric deep fryer, set the temperature control to 375°F.

3.Combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk gently until well combined. Add the water and sesame oil and whisk until the batter is completely smooth.

4.Dip a shrimp into the batter until it is completely coated, and let any excess batter drip off. Gently slide the shrimp into the hot oil. Repeat with the remaining shrimp, dipping and frying only as many shrimp at a time as will fit in the pan in one layer without crowding. Fry the shrimp until lightly golden, 1 to 2 minutes, turning occasionally with tongs. Remove the shrimp from the oil, and drain on paper towels.

5.To finish the dish, place the lemon sauce over medium-high heat and bring it back to a boil. Add the cornstarch mixture, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens, about 30 seconds.

6.Place the shrimp on a large platter and pour the sauce over the top. Serve immediately. Lemon Shrimp - Lemon Garlic Shrimp Recipe
