Very simple to prepare and extremely delicious. May try the batter on fish, chicken, etc. Not oily & very lite!

Easy and delicious! I had about 2 lbs of shrimp so towards the end I thinned the batter out with about 2 tblsp milk to stretch it. They looked a little different but were equally as delicious. It took longer to clean and devein the shrimp than it did to make the batter and fry them. Loved it! Thanks for sharing. *Made for Spring PAC 2009*
