I am so very dissapointed in this dish. I wanted to do it for a dinner party, I bought 23$ in shrimp and started to make it well............DISASTER!!! The breading was so hard and it started a greese fire in my kitchen! I thought i would give it another try and try my deep fryer............even worse. Do not use this recipe. I am sorry to whoever posted it here but.... it was very bad!



These shrimp were wonderful.This was the first time that I have ever made deep fried shrimp, and it turned out wonderful. It appears to me that the problems with the negative views were due to cooking stupidity. These shrimp are arsons, they don't start grease fires...people do! I love them, and I will make them again. Great with steak! A+ to the person who submitted it! P.S It was helpful to scale it down, 4 lbs is a TON of shrimp!



this is the recipe my husband likes it very much. I always use jumbo shrimps to prepare it.And anybody who tried it likes it. I do not know who review this recipe but was not honest enough to judge like that.I think she or he doesn't know anything about seafood that's why easily messed with that.
