Per portion: 2018 kJ / 482 kcal

  • 15 peeled king prawns
  • 150 g cuttlefish fillet or calamari
  • 10 fresh shiitake mushrooms
  • 10 pieces of baby corn
  • 1 red bell peppers
  • 10 pepperonis or sticks of green asparagus
  • 1 courgette

For the tempura sauce:

To make the pastry:

  • 300 ml cold water
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 170 g wheat flour
  • 10 g corn meal
  • A little oil for frying


Preparation time: 1h

To make the sauce, put the stock and stir-fry sauce in a pan and heat them up. Just before the mixture boils, remove it from the heat and place aside. Peel the radish and ginger, grate finely and drain well in a sieve. To make the batter mix the water and egg yolk and gradually add the flour and corn meal, stirring gently. Then peel the prawns and remove the black vein.

Cut the cuttlefish fillets into 2x4 cm pieces and slit them so that they don’t become deformed in the deep frying process. Trim and halve the shiitake mushrooms and baby corn. Cut the red bell pepper into 2x4 cm pieces so that they are the same size as the fish pieces. Trim the pepperoni and slit with the knife. Cut the courgette into approx. 8 mm thin slices.

Coat all ingredients with flour, shaking off the excess. Put 2-3 ingredients on each wooden skewer, dip them in the batter and deep fry in oil at approx. 170°C.

Arrange on a plate and serve with the sauce, the radish and the ginger.
