    Default Using "offering price" & "tempura shrimp"

    Is it OK to say "and made an offering price for customer."
    What is a better way to say this? I want to sound professional.

    What part of speech is and what is correct way of saying " tempura shrimp vs. shrimp tempura"?

    Thanks to everyone who reply.

    1 'offering price' has a specialised meaning: Offering Price: Definition and Much More from Answers.com Why not say that you made an offer to your customer?
    2 I'd say 'Shrimp tempura'

    If you don't want to get involved in high finance, and just mean 'the price at which something is offered for sale', you could use the term 'asking price' (which may be peculiar to the UK).
