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.

Directions

  1. Blot shrimp dry with paper towels and set aside. Heat several inches of oil to 350 degrees in a deep, heavy pot or deep fryer.
  2. Combine the dredging mixture in a shallow dish.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk the baking powder, salt and paprika into the flour. Whisk in the egg and water, blending well.
  4. Hold shrimp by the tail, dredge, dip in batter and slip into hot oil. Fry a few at a time just until batter is golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
