Recipe by Bonnie G #2
There's a lot of recipes with this name but received this one from Cooking.com & it's different than the others that I could find & sounds really good. Says: Rice flour is the "secret ingredient" in this dish and is used to make the flavorful coating for the shrimp. But if you can’t find it, cornstarch makes a fine substitute. Serve the shrimp with rice noodles or brown rice and a sprinkle of chopped scallions. Rice flour is made from finely milled white rice. It is often used in Asian cooking for desserts and to thicken sauces. Look for it in Asian markets or the natural-foods section of your supermarket.
