Ingredients:

1 pound raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
oil for deep frying

Batter:

1 medium egg
2 teaspoons water
6 to 8 tablespoons cornstarch

Sauce:

4 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons water
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons wine vinegar
1 tablespoons dry sherry
1 tablespoons sesame oil
1 clove garlic, pressed
Red pepper flakes to taste

Directions:

Combine sauce ingredients in small saucepan. Simmer 10 minutes and set aside. Combine batter ingredients to a consistency that just clings to shrimp (batter should not be too thick or too thin). In medium saucepan, heat oil until hot. Dip shrimp in batter and drop (3 or 4 at a time) into hot oil. Cook until golden brown (2-3 minutes) and remove to paper towels. Serve shrimp warm with sauce at room temperature.
