Recipe by Jackie Smith
"A Japanese-style meal. Deep-fried shrimp and a tangy sauce to dip them in. Try battering some vegetables such as onions, peppers, or broccoli in addition to the shrimp. Delicious!"

I followed the recipe exactly as written and thought it was super. My husband loved it. marnodegi
I wasn't real keen on the vanilla cookie part, so I decided to scrap it. I used rice flour instead. The water that's used to make the batter must be VERY cold, as it will help the batter to poof while frying. Due to the high moisture content of the shrimp, make sure you dip the shrimp into flour before you coat with the batter. The batter will adhere much better. Thanks Jackie!
It should have been included in the recipe how shrimps can be "starightened" during cooking
I think it is easier to use a Tempura Mix in lieu of Vanilla Cracker.
Buy tempura mix from your local Asian grocery store- much easier and a lot better.
Very good, but just a little too sweet. The vanilla over powers the shrimp taste, and didn't stick too well on the shrimp.
Slice sweet potato, very large carrots, zucchini, eggplant etc thinly and use batter recipe. Sprinkle with sesame seeds as soon as you take out of oil. Yummy!!
I did not care for this recipe. TOO Sweet is an understatement.
