This is a restaurant-quality dish that can easily be prepared at home, you may adjust the amount of fresh garlic and hot sauce may be replaced for the dried chili flakes, make certain that you pat the shrimp dry with paper towels to remove all the moisture or it will create a thin sauce. --- this dish is *very* good!
I looked through all the crab cake recipes and was horrified that all of them seemed to have mayo in them. This is a recipe passed down through my family through word of mouth for a long time. The measurings are guesses since we never wrote em down, we just observe and cook till they taste good. Hope yall like em!
The name pretty much gives away the recipe, but this is the my favorite way to eat fresh crab (and most other seafood). Be sure to have crusty french bread on hand to soak up the excess. Adjust amounts to your taste.
It just doesn't get any easier than this! Not including the marinating and pasta water heating time, dinner is on the table in ten minutes. My family has been passing around this little jewel of a recipe for a couple of years and I usually make it about twice a month. I just eyeball the amount of ingredients, so use your own judgment if things don't look right. To make it even easier, I usually prepare the raw shrimp/marinade mixture in Ziploc bags and stuff them in the freezer for super-quick mid-week dinners (I cook the shrimp without thawing them-justs takes a minute or two longer). My mom likes to add 1/2 teaspoon of dry mustard to her marinade, but I omit it due to personal preference.
A long time favorite I have used for over 25 years, plan ahead the batter needs to sit for one hour before using --- the amounts listed will be enough for 2 pounds of fish, you may double but make certain to prepare two separate recipes in two bowls, do not double into one bowl as the batter will not be as good --- you may wish to add in 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and paprika to the flour mixture for extra flavor and for a little heat add in a pinch of cayenne pepper :)
This recipe produces a nice crisp outside to deep fried fish. For best results cook fish in oil preheated to 375°F. Fry fish for 3-5 minutes depending on the size of the chunks. The same goes for how many pieces this recipe will coat I say enough fish for 4 but it depends on serving size
