Shiitake Tempura 


  • 1 cup flour   
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder       
  • dash of salt      
  • 1 teaspoon sugar       
  • 1 cup or more ice


 Dipping Sauce

  • ¼ cup mirin or medium sherry     
  • ¼ cup light shoyu (soy sauce)
  • 1cup chicken broth
  • ½ cup sugar               
  • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh ginger,  if desired
  • Oil
  • Shiitake mushrooms & veggies                         

This dish takes only a few minutes to cook, so set the table and get the dipping bowls ready before you start cooking. 

  1. First prepare the Shiitakes. You can include large chunks of your favorite vegetables and add large shrimp, if you like. 

  2. Second, make the dipping sauce:  Mix all the ingredients in a small saucepan, cook over low heat until heated through and keep it warm. 

  3. Then the batter:  Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a bowl.  Add the egg and whip or beat.  Slowly addwater until the batter is the consistency of whipping cream. 

  4. Set in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.  It should cling to your chopstick or spoon and fall off in large drops. If it’s too thick, mix in a little more water.  

  5. Have two sets of tongs, chopsticks or holey spoons, one for handling the battered pieces and one for handling the oily pieces. 

  6. Heat at least 2” of oil in a wok or heavy saucepan and heat to 375°F. (If you aren’t using an electric pan or a thermometer, drop a ball of batter into the oil. The oil is hot enough when the batter sinks to the bottom for a second, then floats to surface and sizzles a little.  If it sinks and stays on the bottom, the oil is not hot enough, if it sizzles on the surface immediately, the oil is too hot.)

  7. Fry the tempura on the surface only, do not place the pieces layered on the bottom and top of the oil. 

  8. Gently place the shiitakes and vegetables in the oil. Cook only 1-2 minutes, until golden. 

  9. Drain on paper towels and serve piping hot, with warm sauce in its own bowl.
