East meets Deep South in this tempting hors d'oeuvre. A tempura-inspired batter makes these shrimp incredibly crisp and light, while the sweet and spicy vinaigrette pairs Southern pepper jelly with Thai chili paste and fish sauce.

Ingredients

Directions

Make the vinaigrette: Combine all ingredients in a mason jar. Place lid on jar and shake with vigor. Make the salad: Combine all ingredients in a bowl and season with salt and the zest of the juiced lime. Make the batter: Combine all ingredients with a whisk until smooth. Finish the dish: Add the peanut oil to a large pot to reach a depth of 3-4 inches, and heat the oil to 375°F. Dip each shrimp into batter. Add to the oil and fry for 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 minutes until golden and cooked through. Remove the shrimp from the oil and drain on a plate lined with a paper towel. Serve the shrimp with the vinaigrette and herb salad.
