Camaron Rebosado (translated in English as Overflowed Shrimp) is an easy seafood dish that makes use of shrimps as the primary component. Shelled shrimps are marinated in lemon juice and dipped in a batter before deep frying.This style of cooking shrimp nearly resembles the Japanese tempura and shrimp croquettes; however, some ingredients and preparation steps vary.
Fried dishes are often regarded as bland or having a very mild taste. This is one of the reasons why a rich and flavorful sauce should be paired with such dishes. For this simple shrimp recipe, an easy to make sweet and sour sauce is the solution.
