This was delicious!!! I used very large shrimp, made the recipe exactly as written. I made them partly in advance up to step 4. After breading them I left them in the fridge til needed. As you can see on the picture they came out golden brown and crispy. In the keeper file!

This is absolutely delicious. I don't really care for shrimp, but this recipe was wonderful. It's great to dip in blue cheese. We used smaller shrimp when we made it, but it still came out great!
