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....

This looked so good . . . but messy and sticky. Didn't really pack the punch I was hoping it would. Wouldn't try it again.


I made this last night and substituted chicken instead of shrimp. It was fantastic. I also added crushed red pepper to the sauce to give it a little kick- otherwise followed the recipe. I will make this again and next time I will double the sauce it was delish!


Liked it, but didn't love it. I think next time I would definitely skip the breading and frying of the shrimp. . .just added extra calories in my opinion. Also, I added the zest of 1 orange to my sauce which brightened it up a bit. Served mine atop just a little white rice with a side of steamed broccoli and a cucumber salad.


This was a great dish! Easy and quick too!


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!
