Batter-Fried Shrimp

READY IN: 50mins
Top Review by mailbelle

These were nice and crispy when first taken out of the fryer, but after sitting for just a bit, the batter lost its crispiness, so by the time we'd fried the last of the shrimp, the first ones were somewhat soggy. Very easy to do though.

Ingredients Nutrition

  4. Dip shrimp into batter to coat.
  5. Drop shrimp into hot oil and fry for 30-60 seconds or until golden brown.

  7. Add a 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to batter to make a much lighter crust, or use beer instead of milk for a barley flavor.
