  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 cups very cold water

  2. Combine yolks with water; mix well.
  3. Gradually stir in the flour; stir from the bottom of the bowl, gently.

  6. Pat seafood and veggies dry.
  7. Dip pieces in batter, let drain a little.
  8. Drop a few pieces at a time into hot oil; fry for only a minute or two, till golden.
