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 must have done something wrong because my dish looked nothing like the picture. The batter stuck more to the pan than the shrimp no matter how much oil I added. The sauce was extremely salty - I would not use as much soy sauce as the recipe calls for. Lastly, the crispy coating just soaked up all the sauce and turned into a sobby mess when I finished.

I would say that this recipe has potential, but I was not skilled enough to pull it off.


Yum, Yum, and Yum! This was a huge hit with both me and my husband and I will do it again often. I served it with stir fried sugar snap peas and mushrooms, and cold asian tasting whole wheat noodles. Only issue I had was the sauce took a little longer to thicken....What I did notice was that the left over sauce I had tasted fantastic when it cooled so I will be using that for something else!


This was simple, delicious and elegant. Also fast! I am going to print this and put it in my "for company" book as well as for a fast great meal. I served it with mashed potato and oven roasted broccoli; which was great but next time would take the suggestion of rice. Yummo!


So delicious and EASY. I made it with the recommended basmati rice and snow peas drizzled with sesame oil. It was one of the best dishes I've made from Eating Well, and it was on the table in 15 minutes.


Fantastic. Simple to make. Tastes yummy. Reheats beautifully. What else is there to say?
