Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (330 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.

"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....

I'm a Personal Chef and have made this recipe for a family I cook for. The batter can be tricky and can stick to the pan, which is why its important to use a good non-stick skillet AND I always use a good quality cooking spray, even with non-stick. If you don't touch the shrimp too much in the pan, the batter will get nice and golden and stay on the shrimp. I loved it! Great suggestion to try it with scallops!


Our shrimp looked exactly like the photo because we did not coat them in sauce. We found the orange/shery/soy sauce to be overpowering, all we tasted was orange. We may make this again but add orange to taste and ONLY USE THE SAUCE FOR DIPPING is key.


I made these last night and I was not impressed. The batter didn't stick to the shrimp and it overall wasn't tasty at all. I thought the picture looked fantastic but I thought my try of this recipe worth eating, so we gave it to the dog.


These were so delicious! We did 1/2 shrimp and 1/2 scallops and they both turned out great!


The flavor was there, but it looked nothing like the picture at all. The batter stuck to the pan and made more of a mess than anything. Sorry, not so sure about this one.
