tempura batter?

I'm sure there is a technical difference between tempura and beer batter, that's why I refer to mine as a beer tempura batter :):) What I have found is this...1 cup flour, 1 tsp baking powder, pinch of salt and a good, full bodied beer. It usually takes about 2/3 of a 12oz. beer. Then, after butterflying the shrimp, I dust them in cornstarch, shaking off the excess. When I put the shrimp in the batter, I use my thumb and forefinger to flatten them out and drop into the oil. It gives them a nice wide look :):)

matching alcohol with spicy foods?

I find that a nice New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with spicy foods. Just enough grapefruit to cut thru the spice and a slight passion fruit to complement the flavors :):)
