    Dreamgoddess's Note:

    This shrimp is deep fried and then coated with a very spicy buffalo sauce. Not for the faint of heart! I love this served with bleu cheese dressing for dipping. Prep time includes resting time in the refrigerator.

      I can not rave about this recipe enough! I only wish I could give it more stars!! When I first started making the recipe I was just going to halve it because it was only my husband and I eating dinner, but then decided half way through to just make the whole thing and am I ever glad that I did. We ate a whole pound of shrimp this evening. The only meat that I eat is seafood, but I really miss some things that I used to eat and buffalo chicken is one of them. Thanks goodness I finally found something to replace it, and actually I think I like buffalo shrimp better than I ever liked buffalo wings! Dreamgoddess, thank you so much for posting this recipe!
