Pokey, this was delicious! I used it to fry shrimp and the coating stayed on very well. The only change I made was to add in a few dashes of hot sauce, just cause we like it. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

I loved the flavor of this batter! I used round steak bites. This is kind of like milanesa, with a cajun twist! Thanks Pokey!
