Shrimp Tempura and Chinese BBQ Ribs

I've been trying for 10 years to get a flaky tempura.  Finally, tonight, I got close.  Still got a ways to go, but I'm sniffing on the scent.

This was a fusion dinner.  Chinese BBQ ribs and Japanese Tempura.

    This hurts me to say: very nice food as well as the photography. I am with Travis on the carrot and if you ever invite me I want more than 3 shrimp.

    Isn't tempura just mineral water and cornstarch?

    Wow Gary, beautiful food and beautiful table setting. Every detail in your photo was thought out. Appreciate your efforts.

    I've decided, when I'm older, I want to be like you. Outside of the whole creepy man on a motorcycle thing. :P

    I think he was calling you out and basically saying you're a Zero. He knew Travis would point it out for you. This Gary guy is very clever. He always has a plan!

  • I seem to recall he characterizes himself as a kitchen beeotch and his wife is the brains and creative one. Maybe she takes the pictures too? Or maybe she sets it up so he can push the shutter button and feel a real sense of creative accomplishment?

    Did I miss something, did VI tell us how it tasted???

    He doesn't have to.  You're supposed to assume it tastes as good as it looks.

    Looks better than most tempura I have had!

    How longs do ribs take to cook as single units?  What sort of tenderness did they possess?

    What would cuisine be without fusion?

    Thanks folks !!!!!

    @CParkTX The trick on the tempura is to dust it in flour, then in batter, and put it in the fryer.  Then drizzle batter on the shrimp as it is frying.

    @Fred19Flintstone Yes, Pam wakes me from being passed out on the floor and tells me supper is ready and plated.  I stumble into the dining room, she hands me the camera, and I snap the picture.

    @MRoss Yes, because of the carrot, the American Heart Assoc. has given the meal it's coveted Seal of Approval.  Also, I'm in negotiations with Nutrisystem for the recipes.

    @Cazzy The lens I used is the Nikkor AF-S 24-85mm 1:3.5 - 4.5 G.  The camera is a Nikon D600.

    @Lowflyer and @Fred19Flintstone It tasted like crap.  The dogs wouldn't even eat it.

    @Z_Engineer I think the ribs took about 45 minutes to an hour @ 300F.  I'm sure a low and slow cook would have produced much more tender ribs, but I think you're after that funky Asian taste with Chinese BBQ ribs, not tenderness so much.
