Sweet Potato Shrimp Fritters Recipe (Banh Tom)


2 large sweet potatoes (cut into french fry like slices)
12 large head and shell on shrimp, deveined (you can also remove the head and shell, but we prefer everything intact for more crunch!)
1 package of tempura batter (several different brands are available in Asian groceries– just follow package instructions–but instead of water, we substitute half water/beer)
Pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon of tumeric powder
lettuce, herbs such as basil, mint, perilla, Vietnamese balm, pickled carrots and daikon
nuoc mam cham (Vietnamese Dipping Fish Sauce)
