Wonderful!! I made the batter up and while it set, I heated the oil and got everything ready to fry. I made shrimp, chicken bites, and pineapple chunks. Served all of this with a sweet and sour sauce, over rice. Added a few sauted green pepper slices, oh my, it was so good!! Thank you Barbara, this will get a lot of use!

I used this batter for sweet and sour pork which I cooked then stir-fried with green peppers, onions, and carrots along with Beachgirl's "Chinese Sweet and Sour Sauce" Chinese Sweet and Sour Sauce. It turned out excellent and is definitely something I will prepare again, with pork, and also with shrimp and perhaps chicken. Thanks for a great recipe!

This recipe is very good and easy. My grandaughter and I used it when we made sweet and sour shrimp and lemon chicken. I will definitely use it again. It will also go in a recipe book I am making for all my grandchildren. Peggy Loessin Albuquerque, NM

Excellent, easy to make, great taste, light and crisp and browns at a perfect rate to ensure the shrimps (I used prawns) are cooked through perfectly at the same so not really much more you can ask for!

First off, this recipe is AWESOME and really does taste like resturant quality....I have a few suggestions that made mine work a little better. I made the recipe exactly like it says and it was still too runny for me....(I like a thick breading on my food) so I just added probably another half cup of flour. (I used self rising) That made it the perfect thick consistency I needed. The other thing I did was cook it on 375 instead of 350 and it seemed to work better. I LOVE this recipe and will use it many more times!

Amazing. I've used this recipe SEVERAL times... I use chicken instead of fish, though... My family loves it... as do I. Thanks for posting this!

What a great recipe. Thank-you! I used it for chicken instead of shrimp for our Chines night. Kids loved it and it was easy and simple to do. Thanks again.
