I don't usually like a recipe where the clean up takes longer than the cooking, but this is an exception. The shrimp was surprisingly crunchy and delicious. I used frozen shrimp because I hate cleaning and deveining shrimp. I love how the recipe says, "devein, if desired." When is that not desirable? I would serve to company -- because it is not fried, it does not need to be served immediately. I did not enjoy the orange marmalade sauce, but I hate mustard. Still looking for a good sauce.
