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...

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

Deep fried the shrimp about 3 minutes at 375. Peach sauce was really nice and I'm going to save the batter recipe for other goodies. Yup this was quite good and I will make this again.

This actually looks good!

This truly is awesome! The batter is perfect and the sauce is oh so sweet and tangy
