    alligirl's Note:

    Found this recipe and thought it looked great; can't wait to taste the plum dipping sauce! :-) It is Emeril's recipe, but I modified a seasoning, to suit my tastes. This recipe was taken from and posted for ZWT.

      This was SO fun to make :) It was my first tempura and I made it with my mom for ZWT6. The recipe was easy to follow and it turned out very delicious. The plum sauce is the best sweet & sour sauce I've had so far, so it is going in my permanent recipe folder :D
