you can make a beer batter the same way as a light tempura replacing the sparkling water with beer.
if it were me,id put finly diced shallots and cumin in the batter.id serv the dish with a rich tomatoe sauce.
crisp batter,crunchy shallots,creamy prawns(if you use the larger ones)the sauce would compliment the dryness of the cumin so well.great taste ,amazing texture what more do you need

I'm sorry to say that it didn't work out to well. The only small peeled shrimp were imported tasteless critters so went with the large local ones for flavour. I couldn't get the batter "thing" to work, it was to time consuming. I couldn't get any of the spices suggested so ended up going back to crumbs. What ended up being a reasonable product was instead of using egg wash I used coconut cream and then 50/50 shredded coconut and breadcrumb. We did a few fish bites this way as well, not to bad at all. The coconut didn't burn as I expected it would and it did give a nice crunch and looked nice.
I just need to find more time to experiment, so thanks heaps for your help.
