Sesame Orange Shrimp

Using egg whites instead of whole eggs (or yolks) in the batter creates a crispier coating; cooking the shrimp in batches (so as not to crowd the pan) also helps. This versatile recipe is equally delicious when prepared with sliced chicken breast, pork loin, or steak.

    Oh my, what can I say that is complimentary enough? This is just one of those special dishes which you could easily serve to guests! I made this last night and my family loved it; even hubbs who is not a sauce lover like my daughter and me. The shrimp was delightful, and I served it with plain while rice, also asparagus and bacon, (another recipe from dear Martha) I will rotate this recipe with chicken, as shown in the video. This is a keeper!

    I loved it. The chicken turned out perfect. I only made a few changes to the sauce. Instead of sugar I replaced it with a tablespoon of honey. I added 1/4 cup of triple sec and some grated orange zest. Don't leave off the chopped green onions at the end. They seem to cut the sweetness off the sauce. I can't wait to do the shrimp. It was truly better then I have ever purchased in a restaurant.

    I thought this recipe was quite good! I added an additional tbsp of soy sauce and some red pepper flakes and the sauce really came alive.

    I have to go along with the consensus that this recipe was OK, but had nothing to wow me. Not sure I would make it again. Shrimp were slightly crispy, but they and the sauce were bland. I have better shrimp recipes.

    This dish is OK. Nothing out of this world, however with some tweeking perhaps it could be? I agree that the sauce is a little lack lustre, and when I had to reheat the prawns up in the second step of the recipe, they went a little soggy..

    HMM? I wasn't really happy with the flavor of the sauce. It was missing something. The way the shrimp was prepared turned out nice and crispy. Next time I will maybe add more soy sauce and maybe garlic and sesame oil.
