Using egg whites instead of whole eggs (or yolks) in the batter creates a crispier coating; cooking the shrimp in batches (so as not to crowd the pan) also helps. http://www.marthastewart.com/317146/sesame-orange-shrimp?czone=food/dinner-tonight-center/dinner-tonight-main-courses&backto=true&backtourl=/photogallery/quick-better-than-takeout-recipes#slide_11

Recipe Ingredients for Sesame Orange Shrimp (stewart)

2 large egg whites
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 teaspoon Coarse salt (to taste)
12 teaspoon ground pepper (to taste)
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup vegetable oil, plus more if needed
1 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
4 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced

Recipe Directions for Sesame Orange Shrimp (stewart)

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites, cornstarch, sesame seeds, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper until frothy. Add shrimp, and toss to coat.

  2. Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in two or three batches, cook shrimp until golden and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Add more oil to skillet if necessary for remaining batches.

  3. Wipe skillet with a paper towel. Add orange juice, soy sauce, and sugar. Boil over high heat until syrupy and reduced to about 1/3 cup, 4 to 5 minutes. Return shrimp to skillet; add scallions, and cook until heated through and coated with sauce, about 1 minute.
