Frozen Popcorn Shrimp in Air Fryer

Tempura is a Japanese dish consisting of seafood or vegetables that have been battered and deep-fried. The dish was introduced to Japan by the Portuguese in the 16th century, during the time when Japan was closed off to the rest of the world except for a few Dutch and Portuguese traders who were allowed to trade with the country.

The Portuguese brought with them a type of fried food that was coated in wheat flour and eggs, and this dish was adapted by the Japanese to create tempura. The name “tempura” is thought to come from the Latin word “tempora”, which means “time” or “time of fasting”, as it was traditionally eaten by Japanese monks during periods of fasting.

Tempura quickly became popular among the Japanese people, and it is now one of the most famous and widely consumed Japanese dishes both in Japan and around the world. It is often served in restaurants and as a street food, and can be made with a wide variety of ingredients, including shrimp, squid, fish, vegetables, and mushrooms.
