"A Japanese-style meal. Deep-fried shrimp and a tangy sauce to dip them in. Try battering some vegetables such as onions, peppers, or broccoli in addition to the shrimp. Delicious!"

I wasn't real keen on the vanilla cookie part, so I decided to scrap it. I used rice flour instead. The water that's used to make the batter must be VERY cold, as it will help the batter to poo...

It should have been included in the recipe how shrimps can be "starightened" during cooking

I followed the recipe exactly as written and thought it was super. My husband loved it. marnodegi
