Author's Notes

Pat the shrimp dry before marinating them. Water tends to get trapped in the shrimp tails and may cause the hot oil to spatter when you deep-fry it. You can use shrimp without a tail.

To make sure the oil is hot enough, test by deep-frying a few strands of any leftover vermicelli noodle. The noodle should puff up almost immediately.

If the noodles are too sticky to handle, toss them in a little sesame oil.

Store any leftover shrimp in an airtight container in the fridge. It will keep for about 3–4 days, and re-heat the shrimp in a toaster oven for 1-2 minutes, or in the oven at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 10 minutes.
