Paula Deen's Beer Battered Shrimp

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by StephanieNS

I found this recipe on Food Network's website and couldn't believe it wasn't on Zaar! This is a super simple fried shrimp recipe from Paula Deen. I tried this on my shrimp the other night and it was delicious. I also fried some chicken tenders in the batter and they were delicious as well. Make sure you let the beer/flour mixture sit for a few hours before using it.

Quick and easy recipe. I used the extra batter and fried up some broccoli, that was good too. Thanks for sharing.
