This was super easy, though a little messy, I season my 21/30 count easy peel shrimp with season salt, then I dredged in a seafood breader {flour version) then into the egg mixture and rolled in panko bread crumbs and then into the fryer. Watch your oil temp, my first batch cooked and browned a little to fast. After that the rest came out golden brown with a great crunch, very good, I made my own cocktail sauce also. Panko bread crumbs with keep your shrimp breading crunchy.


This recipe doesn't give any cooking instructions, which for someone who's never fried anything is very helpful. For best frying results I would recommend using a cast iron skillet or dutch oven if you have one, otherwise just a heavy pan. Peanut oil also works best or just vegetable oil. Use a candy thermometer to see that oil reaches 350 degrees and fry shrimp in small batches (4 or 5 at a time) for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.


Finally.....a breading that actually sticks to the shrimp! Very good, very easy. I thought it might be a bit bland, so I added garlic powder, garlic salt and paprika. The paprika made them fry up golden brown. YUMMY!
