Ingredients for seafood:
100 gram Fresh squid-cut into rings
100 gram Fresh King prawn-peeled
120 gram Tempura Batter
180 ml Icy cold Sparkling water
1 litre Frying oil
1 Bird eye chilli(red)-finely chopped
1 clove Garlic-finely chopped
1 teaspoon Oyster sauce
1 teaspoon Fish sauce
1 teaspoon Light Soy sauce
1 pinch each Salt, sugar, black pepper, paprika
Ingredients for pizza:
1 Ready-made pizza base or round garlic bread
60 gram Mozzarella-grated.
20 gram Onion-chopped
A small handful of Coriander and basil-finely chopped
1-2 wedge Lime
1 tablespoon Olive oil
3 tablespoon Tomato puree
2 tablespoon Passata
1/4 teaspoon Dry mix herbs
1/4 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
1/4 teaspoon Sugar
1 pinch each Salt, black pepper
-Marinate the king prawns and squid with Bird eye chilli, garlic, oyster sauce, fish sauce, light soy sauce, salt, pepper and paprika for approx 1 hour. Once ready to cook -drain all the marinate liquid out.
-Gently fry the onion in the olive oil until it becomes translucent then add the passata and gently fry for further 5 minutes.
-Add the dry mixed herbs, sriracha sauce, tomato puree, sugar, salt and black pepper then cook for further 4-5 minutes. Stir-regularly.
-Mix Tempura batter according to the instruction on the package. I mixed the batter with 180 ml of icy cold sparkling water.
-Spread the sauce on the ready-made pizza base then cook according to the instruction. Take it out of the oven just before the time on the package and spread mozzarella cheese on the top and cook until the cheese melt and lovely.
-Heat the oil at 180 Celsius. Dip the prawns and squid in the batter mixed. Then fry until they cooked. Usually, it takes approx 3-4 minutes.
-Once both elements are ready. Assemble by putting the Tempura seafood in the middle. Squeeze the lime, scatter the red chilli slices, chopped coriander and basil on top.
-This dish will need good multi-tasking skills as you need to bake the pizza base at the same time as fry the tempura seafood. So plan well.
-Put the seafood piece by piece so it won’t clumps together.
-Deep fat fryer would make everything much easier for this recipe but you will need at least 1.5 litres of oil to fry. Happy cooking.🙋🏽
