Prepare the Batter by mixing all the ingredients together. Prepare the Dressing by combining all the ingredients together.
Add the shrimp into the batter and coat evenly. Heat up a deep-fryer or a pot with oil for deep-frying. When the oil is heated, drop each shrimp gently into the oil and deep fry until they turn golden brown. Transfer them out with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl lined with paper towels.
