An interesting thing Annie and I picked up overseas was this recipe for a tempura poached egg. I’ve long been mystified by the poached egg, so naturally when I learned that this deep fried alternative existed I absolutely had to know how it was done.
Fortunately for me the instructions are simple and straightforward.
– Boil water
– Putt egg in water
– Wait 6 minutes
– Remove egg from boiling water and place in ice bath for 1 minute
– Carefully remove eggshell
– Roll in tempura crumbs
– deep fry for 30 seconds – 1 minute
– season to taste
Play with the times to get your egg to the degree of runniness you prefer.
