Step 1

Rinse and pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; set aside.

Step 2

Combine all sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.

Step 3

 Mix all the frying batter ingredients in a bowl. Keep whisking the batter until no more lumps remain and the batter is smooth. Add the shrimp to the batter and stir to coat evenly.

Step 4

Heat the wok or a saucepan with 2 to 3 inches of oil to 350°F (170°C) for deep-frying. Gently drop the shrimp into the oil one at a time and immediately loosen them up with chopsticks or a spatula to avoid them sticking together.

Step 5

Deep-fry the shrimp to golden brown on both sides, and remove them from the oil with a strainer or a slotted spoon. Place the fried shrimp on a plate lined with paper towels. Discard the oil in the wok.

Step 6

Add the sauce into the wok; keep stirring until it thickens. Transfer the fried shrimp to the wok, and stir continuously until all the shrimp are evenly coated with sauce.

Step 7

Garnish the shrimp with white sesame seeds and serve immediately.
