DIRECTIONS

  • Peel, devein and wash shrimp.
  • In a medium bowl beat eggs with a fork until well blended.
  • Put shrimp in eggs and mix so all shrimp is coated with eggs.
  • Put saltine crackers in plastic bag and crush with rolling pin.
  • Don't roll them too fine.
  • Heat oil in pan.
  • Add shrimp to the cracker crumbs, a few at a time and coat well.
  • Drop into hot oil and fry until golden brown.
  • Remove and drain on paper towels.
  • Do not over cook as this toughens the shrimp.
