    Awesome. Had guests who didn't really like shrimp and thought it was marvelous. I served this as a main course and used 5 cups of salad greens and even that wasn't enough. Could have gone 6 - 8 depending on how much people love greens. Also, could have reduced the breading mixture by about 1/3. With my first batch of shrimp, I used all peanut oil but had to add some olive oil. The peanut oil seems to burn at too low a temp. On the second batch, I mixed peanut oil and olive oil 1:1. That worked much better. Will definitely make again. Rave reviews all around. The dressing was perfect with it.

    This is good enough for company! The many flavors are interesting and refreshing for a hot summer day. I'll definately make this again. There seemed to be too much breading, and I browned it along with the shrimp and used it as topping. It was good, but next time I think I'll cut the panko by half.
