Directions See How It's Made

- Add a little chile powder, cumin and garlic powder to the masa or flour.

- Tear tortillas into rough pieces- process in food processor till you have a coarsely ground meal- like raw oatmeal- combine with corn meal Coat shrimp thoroughly with masa or flour.
- Dip shrimp in eggwash making sure they get completely wet.
- Coat shrimp with tortilla-corn meal breading, pressing the breading into the shrimp to insure there are no bald spots.
- Deep fry shrimp at 375 degrees (be sure to use your fry thermometer and bring oil back up to 375 between batches before you put more shrimp back in- this keeps the shrimp cooking fast and not greasy) Remove shrimp and drain on rack, not paper towels and keep warm till ready to serve Serve with guacamole and Green Pumpkin Seed Salsa.
