Panko Crusted Shrimp

"Found this gem on the Canadian Food Network. Christine Cushing is the author. It has become our favorite shrimp recipe. Use your imagination to season the flour. Do keep it simple so your don't overpower the crisp, clean flavor of the shrimp. I like to use 1 teaspoon of lemon pepper. This can be used as an appetizer, or a main dish served with your favorite rice recipe. Our rating system for keeper recipes is simple. "Make again", "Can I have seconds", and the very rarely used "Orgasm". This recipe rates a definate "Orgasm"."

  1. This was an exceptionally easy and faboulsly tasty to prepare. Def worth making!
  2. I couldn't improve on this recipe if I tried. It is so crunchy and crispy and although I cooked a few at a time, they stayed crisp till I was finished. I ,too, had some breading left over and I used it to fry some steamed leftover broccoli and cauliflower. They turned out great too. Will be using this recipe a lot. Thanks, Donna
  3. Hi 5 to you MTDavids. This was perfect! A friend gave me a bag of Panko bread crumbs so I looked up a recipe & dedide to make this one. Finally breaded shrimp that doesn't become soggy after a while. Perfectly crispy and the dipping sauce was surprisingly GREAT! Like a sweet & sour type sauce. Depending on your taste buds you may want to sprinkle a tad of garlic salt to the raw shrimp. If you don't know what seasoned flour contains it's a bit of salt, pepper, thyme, oregano, basil, paprika & dry mustard.
  4. By far the best Panko Shrimp Recipe! For the Seasoned Flour I seasoned with Creole Seasoning and made my own Cocktail Sauce. Ketchup, Raw Horsradish and Tobasco. Totally Awesome! Husband Loved it!
  5. It was easy and fantastic. Panko is awesome. My husband raved. will make it instead of tempura! Thanks!

Pet peeves: Whining professional athletes' salaries, boaters who run across my fishing line while I'm trolling, and women who insist on driving while I'm behind the wheel (not you sweetheart, you make critical navigational observations).
