To Make the Batter

To Prepare the Shrimp
- De-vein and peel off the shell back to the tail. Leave the last segment of the shell plus the tail as a handle.

- Deep-fry four shrimp at a time for 2 to 3 minutes or until the shrimp become golden brown. Flip the shrimp halfway through.
- Drain on paper towels briefly before serving with marmalade sauce on the side.
