Bazun gwet kyaw – Burmese shrimp tempura


“Shrimp basket” (Bazun gwet kyaw)

Unshelled shrimp
Bean sprouts
Chinese lettuce
Frying batter (IDK what’s in it)

Sambal mixed with taramind juice

I meant to upload this awhile back. For my grandpa’s birthday celebration, we had enough leftovers to split among 7 families and feed us for a whole week. I brought back two boxes of shrimp baskets, which are basically deep-fried tempura consisting of unshelled shrimp, fresh bean sprouts, and eaten on Chinese lettuce with a chili/tamarind sauce. Yum.
