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.

    Nope. I followed instructions pretty closely - and am handy with these things. But the batter immediately totally left the shrimp and stuck really well to the pan... and the shrimp ended up bitter, which wouldn't have been the case if I'd simply sauteed them with olive oil or butter.

    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.
