In a medium bowl, add the batter ingredients.

Next, add the 10 shrimp to the beer batter.
Add about 1/2 cup of oil (depending on your pan-the oil should cover the bottom and go slightly up the sides) to the pan and set to high heat.
1 cup vegetable oil
Using tongs, remove 1 shrimp from the batter, shake off excess and add to the oil once is at 375 degrees (you can test by dropping some batter into the oil and see if it sizzles). Repeat with the other 9 shrimp.
Let them fry for 2 minutes. Flip using metal tongs to the other side, fry for 2 more minutes.
Remove the shrimp and add them to a plate covered in a paper towel.
Repeat this process until all of the shrimp have been cooked. Add oil to the pan as necessary.
