  1. Place the shrimp in a bowl and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. In a small bowl, stir together the flour and paprika. Place eggs and panko crumbs into separate bowls.
  2. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Dip each shrimp into the flour mixture, then into the egg, and finally into the panko crumbs to coat. Fry a few at a time until golden brown. This should take no longer than 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels before serving.

Excellent recipe and easy to make. Messy, though, so be prepared. My only suggestion would be to dredge, dunk and coat all the shrimp first then let sit on a wire rack or parchment paper while ...

Wow! These are by far the best tasting fried shrimp I've ever eaten. My husband is a bit of a food snob and he devoured every last one. This is a recipe that I will make again and again. It's f...

I wound up making these because DH wasn't able to get his "shrimp & fries basket" at the ice cream stand we took the kids to. I volunteered to make him shrimp and fries at home. I recently bough...

Followed recipe exactly. Really, really good! My husband will only eat seafood from nice seafood restaurants. He was shocked I could make the same quality, delicious fried shrimp at home. Wi...

Just good for us. My 1 lb. of medium shrimp was 20 shrimp. Instead of eggs I used beer to dip. Definitely 1/2 cup flour if not less; same with the panko crumbs. It's easier to add more if necess...

Fantastic but there are few tips to ensure resturant quality. First make sure you season shrimp before dredging in flour. Do not try and skip this step by mixing in flour it makes a big diffe...

This recipe was great and easy. I prepared this recipe while my tilapia recipe baked for 24 minutes. When the tilapia came out of the oven, I added the shrimp to a plate and dinner was served......
