Fried Shrimp

READY IN: 18mins
Top Review by Shelly Morton

My picky kids ate it so I had to give it 5 stars. The shrimp were crispy and flavorful. I added all the seasonings mentioned to the batter with the addition of a few shakes of Frank's Red Hot sauce. We all enjoyed it and I will make again. Used the leftover batter to fry some onion rings. Yum.
