    I loved the sauce, but I only rated it 3 stars cause the breading was too thick for me. The second time, I dipped the shrimp in very lightly beat egg whites and tossed them in cornstarch. This lightly coated the shrimp the way I like. The sauce is not to be beat though, incredible taste.

    This receipe was excellent. I forgot about the mayo and did not have enough so I used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream. My kids ate the oranges (LOL), so I used lemon juice. I did not feel that the sauce was too sweet and really enjoyed the lemon hint. Overall, a great recipe that I will be making again.

    I tried this recipe in an attempt to duplicate a fav dish from a restaurant back home. This was different, but still very good. I found the sauce very sweet, it could probably be used in a desert as well. Thanks for sharing! :)
