Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

  1. Rinse shrimp, pat dry, and set aside to drain on paper towels.
  2. Combine cornstarch, bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon ginger, salt, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Shake to mix well. Add the shrimp and shake to coat.
  3. Whisk ketchup, orange juice, chicken broth, soy sauce, honey, Shaoxing wine, fish sauce, garlic, togarashi, 1 tablespoon ginger, and onion powder together in a medium bowl.
  4. Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Shake excess cornstarch mixture off the shrimp; add shrimp to the pan. Fry until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  5. Swipe most of the oil out of the pan, leaving a light coat. Add the ketchup sauce; cook until heated through, 5 to 7 minutes. Arrange shrimp on a plate; drizzle sauce over and garnish with green onions and cilantro.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Replace orange juice with 1 large orange plus 1 teaspoon zest if desired.
  • For the sauce, you can use 1 inch of peeled fresh ginger, minced, in place of the powder.
  • Instead of drizzling sauce over the shrimp, you can add it to the pan when they are almost done and cook until heated through.
