READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by MsSally

These tasty shrimp were a quick way to make a healthy "breaded" shrimp without the extra fat from the deep frier.

This was good very crunchy I used panko crumbs and whole wheat flour, my neighbor gave me some fried shrimp with which I supplemented these because we didnt have enough. I seasoned the shrimp ahead with garlic powder, bay seasoning etc and just added a whole beaten egg to the shrimp then mixed flour with crumbs in a plastic bag and coated ( I did mess up with the directions). Well the verdict was that although my neighbors fried shrimp was very good these were better, less salty, way crunchier and the shrimp taste was prominent. Don't overcook which I almost did because the color was pale. I will keep making these... Oh BTY I cooked directly on a wire rack for the whole 7 minutes so I didn't spray oil, although next time I will spray the prepared product lightly with oil spray before cooking to add a bit of oomph. The only negative is that it was still bland even after I pre-seasoned so don't be afraid to season both the shrimp and the breadcrumbs if they are plain and of course to your taste.
