Sesame-Orange Shrimp

November/December 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (298 votes)

These shrimp are super-easy to make—just coat them in a simple batter, cook them in a little oil and toss with a tangy sesame-orange sauce. The staff at EatingWell simply could not get enough of these delicious shrimp while we were developing this recipe. Serve with: Brown basmati rice and steamed snow peas tossed with a little toasted sesame oil.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This recipe was absolutely disgusting! I will never make it again and wasted alot of money on food that no one would eat. The coating would not stay on the shrimp, did not get crispy and made a horrid shrimp pancake....

This recipe and meal was wonderful and very easy to make. I am by no means a cooking whiz (yet).. and I was able to manage this one. I think it takes at least 2 tries to get it right. The first time, I dumped the shrimp and batter into the pan and it was a sticky mess (still tasted great). The 2nd time, I used tongs to place each individual shrimp into the pan and used tongs to turn throughout. That worked like a charm. It looks different than the picture because it created a sort of breaded coating, like a monte cristo sandwich. Not sure if that's the right way, but that's how I prefer. Tossed with the sauce and served over steamed rice, it was perfect. The plain rice toned down the rich taste of the sauce. Really impressed the hubby with this one.

Delicious!! I made a double batch, so obviously it took more time, but it was so worth it! I thought the sauce was missing something so I added some powdered ginger and 1/4 cup of chicken broth. My picky husband's exact words, "This is awesome..."
