These are SO good- my family just gobbles them up. Think shrimp, with a thin, crunchy sweet/hot coating.

This was very good. I didn't have allspice or lime and I didn't have fresh ginger so I used powdered, but other then that I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. Fast and easy also.
