Deliciously breaded shrimp accompanied by a spicy sweet sauce. Not your typical fried shrimp basket. Best served immediately, doesn't keep! Perfect for fondue.

Directions

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  4. Add the shrimp in batches to the batter, turning to coat.
  5. Remove with a slotted spoon, shaking off excess batter.
  6. Fry the shrimp in the preheated oil until golden, about 2 minutes.
  7. Transfer the fried shrimp to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  8. Serve with the peach sauce.

EXCELLENT! The sauce is amazing, spot on. The batter consistency and performance is wonderful. There's something missing with the shrimp, though. Not enough to ruin the recipe by a long-shot, but noticeable. I used Yuengling beer- maybe a stronger tasting beer would have helped? I think I would also have seasoned the shrimp itself before dipping in the batter. But seriously...my complaints are minor, this stuff is great!

This was delicious. The only change I made to the recipe - I didn't have peach jam, so I used frozen peach and blended.
