I have posted many shrimp recipes that I thought were great. I found this one on the internet and tried it tonight for dinner and this is the best one I have ever had. The shrimp are dusted with flour, dipped in egg, then dredged in Parmesan cheese, fried to a golden brown and drizzled with a lemon butter sauce. These are absolutely awesome!
