Blue Ribbon Recipe

Once the shrimp is prepared, it's crunchy and sweet. The sauce sticks to the tempura battered shrimp. Candied walnuts give the dish a little crunch and nutty flavor. We really enjoyed this. It reminds us of fried shrimp we've eaten at Chinese restaurants. Serve with rice and your favorite veggies for a tasty dinner.
