Sesame-Orange Shrimp

November/December 2009

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....

We all enjoyed this meal. I did change things up a bit by using a bit less oil to cook the shrimp in, doubling the sauce, and adding a few drops of sesame oil at the end.
Great meal.


Ok, I loved it, and I thought it easy to do. My family are meat and potatoes, it was ok to them, I don't think there was enough fat in it for them.I will keep working on them.


This was absolutely delicious. I had some leftover frozen shrimp from Christmas and used that. My fussy husband loved it and didn't know that it was a healthy dinner.


I have made this several times and it is always super!! Once, I even sliced some scallops and used them instead of the shrimp. Still super!!


Okay, what did I do wrong with this one? The sauce turned out fine (I reduced the soy sauce) but the batter was more rubbery than crispy. I so-oooo wanted to love this, and I agree with the reviewer that says it has potential...
