This Video of Miniature Deep-Fried Shrimp Is Completely Mesmerizing

I have a lot of words to describe deep frying tempura (messy, dangerous, a pain), but cute is not one of them. It's one of my least favorite things to cook, not only because I feel like I'm wasting a bunch of oil (yeah, I know you can save it but.. how many people actually do), but also because I feel like I'm danger of burning my skin off constantly.

But then there's this Japanese video of someone frying up some teeny, tiny mini tempura shrimp. The video is down right relaxing, from its complete lack of narration, to its amazing sound design and adorable tiny kitchen. Check it out after the jump.

Now, if only someone could send over those hamsters that eat those tiny meals.
