Versatility of Upper Crust Tempura Batter

Upper Crust Tempura Batter mix makes a great classic tempura, but is also great as a base batter you can customize. To create your own unique flavor, prepare the Tempura batter using any liquid, so instead of water try:

  • Beer
  • Club soda
  • Buttermilk
  • Coconut Milk
  • Hot sauce, or any liquid

Upper Crust Tempura batter mix has a neutral flavor so it does not overpower the natural flavor of the seafood or vegetable. To add your signature flavor, you can also add spices such as lemon pepper, Italian seasoning, or hot chile spices to bring a flavor only available at your restaurant.

Gourmet Tempura Preparation Tips

Use cold water to prepare the batter. Chilled light beer or Club soda can be substituted. For best results keep the batter cold throughout the day by placing the tempura batter on ice or use a refrigerated batter station.

Do not over blend, lumps and air bubbles are preferred in the batter because it will provide a unique look after fried.

Oil should be heated and maintained at 350°F.

For best results, dust the food in Dry Tempura Batter Mix, shake off excess, then dip into prepared Tempura Batter and place in fryer. To add extra laciness drizzle batter on the food item, as it starts to float, while still in the fryer.

For an extra crispy coating, roll in Panko bread crumbs after the batter dip and then fry.

When using tempura batter and Panko together your staff can pre-stage the coated products and store them in the refrigerator saving you time and money.
