Frozen summer treats Day 31: Tempura-fried ice cream
Day 31 »Tsunami’s Tempura-fried ice cream
First Published Aug 31 2012 10:04 am • Last Updated Aug 31 2012 10:13 am

Throughout August, we tasted our way through 31 of Utah’s finest frozen confections including ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt and shave ice. Today we offer our final pick.

Tempura-fried ice cream » Plunging frozen ice cream into hot oil sounds wrong, but it tastes so right. A scoop of vanilla ice cream is dipped in tempura batter and fried until golden. It’s served with chocolate sauce, a bit of caramel and some mango puree for a crispy-on-the-outside, creamy-on-the-inside dessert.
