    Buster's friend's Note:

    Dunno where Morrison's Cafeteria is but this makes some mighty nice fried shrimp. Adapted from the Miami Herald. I like to use my deep fat fryer outside on the deck - all the crunchy shrimpy goodness outside & no greasy kitchen cleanup! Shrimp are coming in here fast & furious for a while longer - this is a great way to use them.

      I used to go to Morrison's Cafeteria when I was younger, and their fried shrimp was the only thing I ever ordered. I followed this recipe exactly (except I didn't leave the tails on) and these are exactly the way I remember them! The batter makes a big puffy but crunchy coating. Wonderful dipped in My Mom's Cocktail Sauce and served with Hush Puppies (Made Easy). Thanks for posting! Made for 2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag.
