  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
Popcorn Shrimp
  • 1 pound rock shrimp
  • 2 cups rice flour (plus 1/2 cup to dredge)
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 cups chilled seltzer water
  • salt
  • vegetable oil (to fry)
  • Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle in adobo puree
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1/4 cup chives (thinly sliced, plus more to garnish)
  • Preheat oil to 360ºF.
  • Place half a cup of rice flour in a large bowl or casserole dish and season with salt. Add the shrimp to the seasoned rice flour and toss to coat.
  • In a large bowl, combine the chilled seltzer and egg yolks, whisking 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.
  • In a large bowl, add the mayonnaise, chipotle in adobo puree, honey, juice of half a lime, and chives. Stir to combine. Add the shrimp to the bowl with the dressing and toss to coat.
  • To serve, skewer three shrimp together. Repeat with remaining shrimp. Transfer to a platter. Garnish with chives.
  • Tip: Use very cold soda water when combining with the egg yolk, as cold soda water holds onto the bubbles much better.
