  • Heat oil in a large, heavy saucepan to 375 degree F. Dip fish and vegetables in batter. Gently place in oil, a few at a time. Deep-fry for 3 to 5 minutes or until light brown. Drain on paper towels. (Keep warm on a baking sheet in a 300 degree F oven while you fry the remainder.)

Instructions Checklist
  • Serve the fried fish and vegetables warm with Tempura Sauce. Makes about 20 appetizer servings.

Tips

If you can't find the sauce ingredients, combine equal parts white vinegar and soy sauce for a dipper. Or use a purchased dipping sauce that you'll find in the Asian food section of your supermarket.
