    I would like to know if you can make this by baking it.

    Can do the same thing with chicken as well, which is a great alternative to a guest with shellfish allergies. I made both and the reviews were - yum!

    I could not get the batter to stick to the shrimp. I even try to refridgerate them for 45 min with no luck.
