- ---To Make The Shrimp---.
- Combine the egg and milk in a small bowl.
- Place flour in a large gallon-size zip-lock bag.
- Coat six of the shrimp with egg mixture, then toss them in the bag of flour and shake well to coat.
- Leave them in there, and repeat the process, six shrimp at a time.
- Make sure they are all well coated with flour.

We can't buy louisiana sauce or Frank's sauce here, so I used a makeshift sauce to which I added a little Tabasco and ground red pepper. We had it with a light cucumber and lemon dressing for dipping. We all enjoyed it, but the kids thought it was a bit too hot - probably my own fault - I'll tone down the red pepper a bit next time.
I make this with boneless chicken. It's one of my husband's favorites and easy to vary the taste from time to time with different hot sauces.
AMAZING!!!!!!! made the recipe exactly just mixed franks and louisiana (50/50) Taste Just like Hooters!
