INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 2
    lbs uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 14
    cup flour
  • 34
    cup flat beer
  • 1
    egg, slightly beaten
  • 1
    tablespoon sugar
  • 12
    teaspoon salt
  • peanut oil, for deep-frying

DIRECTIONS

  • Butterfly the cleaned shrimp so that they will look larger: hold them so that the underside is up; slice down its length, almost to the vein, to form the hinge.
  • Spread and flatten to form the butterfly shape.
  • Make a batter by mixing together the flour, beer, egg, sugar, and salt.
  • Use a deep fryer and heat a few inches of peanut oil to 375*F.
  • Dip the shrimp into the batter and fry until golden brown; drain on paper towels.
  • Serve hot.
