Fried Shrimp Batter

Recipe by Luby Luby Luby

This recipe originated from a former co-worker and I've made a few minor adjustments in the quantities. You can adjust the seasonings to your own taste. The cooking time for shrimp is minimal so please do not make the mistake of overcooking your shrimp. One of my favorite ways of eating the shrimp is to drop them in a salad of Romaine lettuce and Blue Cheese dressing.

I made the recipe exactly as written. Batter is light but has far too much creole seasoning. It's best to turn the shrimp over when they are beginning to turn a golden color.
