Crunchy Fried Shrimp

Recipe by KS Farmwife

I've guessed on cook time here. These are the crunchiest shrimp I've had outside of a restaurant! This makes alot, but if you are going to make these you may as well go all out!! Everyone loves them! These have received so many mixed reviews that I thought maybe I should mention that I deep fry them in a Presto Fry Daddy and not very many at a time. I never said they were easy...and I get better each time I do it. Thanks for giving them so much attention!

Awesome shrimp!!! I followed the reviews and used panko crumbs and a little old bay seasoning.
