Great Party dish, Member kindleblaze

These shrimp are so very tasty and crunchy and the sauce makes them superb. This is a quick and easy recipe once you have all the ingredients ready and in no time you will have a delightful dish ready for entertaining. It is also an extremely good dish to prepare for the family get togethers. The crunchy, crispness of the breadcrumbs makes the shrimps a delight to eat and the tartare suace gives it that 'just right' tang needed to make your mouth water for more.
