Peach Tempura

Peach Tempura

The first thing I bookmarked from The Perfect Peach was the recipe for Peach Tempura. I love this fruity spin on an old Japanese classic. It’s very fresh and easy to make as well. A fun after work or school snack. Sweet and hot on the inside and crisp on the outside.

The peach tempura was definitely a light welcome treat after the calorie bomb of the dosant from Duck & Waffle at the weekend. I dipped my fresh hot peaches in some Haagen Daz creme brulee ice cream but whipped cream or yogurt would also be great condiments. The book recommends peeling your peaches but I left the skin on and they tasted just fine. Make sure to use ripe peaches but not ones that are oozing with juice when you cut into them.

Use panko breadcrumbs for optimal crunchiness. It may also be a good idea to have extra peaches around the house. I guarantee that you’ll want to make more.

  1. Oh I thought there were coconut flakes in the tempura. I bet that would taste great too. Good thing I was planning on getting peaches today.

  2. These look so good! I’d love to make these, but I’ve become so wary of buying peaches. I always find it so hard to get a nice flavourful ripe ones.

    • It is very hard to get flavorful peaches here but it worked out ok because they need to be nice and ripe but not gushy. The peaches here aren’t very gushy.
