  • Season the 1/2 cup rice flour with salt.
  • Dust the shrimp in the seasoned flour.
  • Combine the seltzer and egg yolks, stirring until combined. Add the 2 cups of rice flour and stir just until mixed, but not smooth.
  • Batter the shrimp, allowing the excess to drip off. In batches, fry the shrimp until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined plate.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the dressing ingredients in a large bowl. Add the shrimp to the bowl, toss to coat, and skewer three shrimp together. transfer to a platter. Garnish generously with chives and enjoy.
  • Tip: Use very cold soda water when combining with the egg yolk, as cold soda water holds onto the bubbles much better.
