Crunchy Fried Shrimp

Crunchy Fried Shrimp created by Zurie

I've guessed on cook time here. These are the crunchiest shrimp I've had outside of a restaurant! This makes alot, but if you are going to make these you may as well go all out!! Everyone loves them! These have received so many mixed reviews that I thought maybe I should mention that I deep fry them in a Presto Fry Daddy and not very many at a time. I never said they were easy...and I get better each time I do it. Thanks for giving them so much attention!

    I have made this recipe a few times and will never use a different one again if I'm frying shrimp. I did , one time added a little hot sauce to the recipe one time but nothing to mess up the original one. love it so so much.

    I've not made these yet, but that's an awesome looking sauce in the photo, would you share it too? Once I get that I'll try the recipe for the shrimp

    Awesome shrimp!!! I followed the reviews and used panko crumbs and a little old bay seasoning.

    Amazingly delicious! We have a new indoor electric fryer and we've been trying out various items in it. These shrimp have been one of the best things we've done so far. We used panko breadcrumbs, but made the batter as directed.
