Made half a recipe for the two and us and it is very good. I also used Spicy French Dressing as highcotton suggested. Served with a salad and the dressing.
Just delicious! I couldn't find the commercial dressing either, so I made some -- Spicy French Dressing -- and it worked great. And discovering the giant box of corn flakes in the cupboard was completely empty, I used a mixture of flour and cornmeal for the breading. But I added some panko for extra crunch, so I think the texture was probably pretty close to what the recipe calls for. Since we enjoy spicy food, we added some creole seasoning to the coating on the second batch and loved the results. Everyone agreed it was some of the best fried shrimp we'd ever tasted!
I was eating as many as I was frying LOL... Best shrimp I have ever eaten. My DH says I can make these once a week, but the budget says NO! Thanks for sharing Kim!
Best fried shrimp I ever had. Great recipe. :D Thanks so much for posting.
This was a big hit...I didn't find a "spicy" french dressing...is this something special? In any case...I'll be making this again...my other half makes great fried shrimp...so I needed a really good recipe...and this was fantastic!
Outstanding shrimp! Everyone (6) at my dinner party loved it. The flavor was wonderful and the crust was so crispy. I usually butterfly fried shrimp, but followed your recipe exactly, and won't bother doing that anymore. I'm putting this in my favorite seafood cookbook, as I know it will be repeated often.
