Heat a deep fat fryer or a pan of oil to 180c/350f
Sift the flours and powder together into a large bowl.
Add the water and break in the egg, whisking to make a smooth batter.
Peel the shrimp shells & legs off, leaving the tail attached.
When the oil is at temperature, hold each shrimp by the tip of its tail and dunk in the batter. Let most of the batter drip away before carefully lowering the shrimp into the hot oil.
Let cook for 4 minutes or until the batter is lightly golden. Don;t overcrowd the pan, I cooked 3 or 4 at a time in milk pan with about 3 inches of oil in.
Carefully lift out of the oil and drain on kitchen paper.
Mix together the soy sauce, sugar and hot sauce
Sprinkle the shrimp with sesame seeds, spring onion and red chilli slices and serve with the spicy soy dressing.
