Korean Deep Fried Shrimp Saewoo Twigim

Korean deep fried shrimp is easy to make and has a thin and extra crispy batter. Korean deep frying mix, which can be found in many Asian grocery stores, is a mix of flours and seasonings that make frying simple. These deep fried shrimp (saewoo twigim) can be made in 15 minutes but are so delicious that I like to serve them as one of the main dishes for guests or special occasions.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
1 pound shrimp, peeled and de-veined
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups Korean deep frying mix powder*

In a deep fryer, large wok, or deep pot, heat up oil to 375 degrees.

Dip each shrimp into eggs and then coat with frying powder.

Drain on rack or on paper towels.
