A nice appetizer, though very caloric. * Don't put too much batter on or it will overwhelm the poor shrimp. The dipping sauce is great for other things as well. : Difficulty: easy if you can deep-fry. : Time: 15 minutes preparation, 15 minutes cooking. : Precision: Measure batter, improvise with spices and dipping sauce. : Nicholas Horton : Aiken Computation Lab, Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass., USA : harvard!horton : Copyright (C) 1986 USENET Community Trust
