I didn't really care for this recipe. The batter was hard to work with. It fell of and/or burned before the shrimps cooked. I then tried to butterfly the shrimps, but it still didn't help. At the end of the day, the final product was bland an did not look appealing. I sprinkled a little salt and squirted it with lime juice and I almost liked it. Made for PAC Spring 2012.
