Preheat the oven to 400F.
Pat shrimp dry with paper towels; season with sea salt.

Dip each shrimp in the flour, then egg whites, then panko and lay on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake 10- 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Meanwhile in a small saucepan over high heat whisk together the water and cornstarch until the corn starch is no longer lumpy. Then add the ketchup, soy sauce, vinegar, and juice. Bring to a boil and let sauce reduce about 4-5 minutes until thickened.
