Deep Fried Shrimp

Wednesday, October 13, 2010 @ 06:10 AM

Everyone loves fried shrimp. You do not have to wait until the next visit to a restaurant either. They are easy enough that you can do it right at home in your own deep fryer. You can cook them in your stove top deep fryer, counter top deep fryer, or maybe even at a tailgate party with your outdoor propane deep fryer or Cajun Fryer.

Heat your frying oil to 380 degrees F.

1 lb of shrimp, fresh or frozen & thawed. ( 26-30 count)

2 eggs

1 5 oz. can of evaporated milk

1 Tbsp. baking powder

2 Tbsp vinegar

Dash of your favorite seasoning, Old Bay, Creole, Cajun, Buffalo, whatever.


Remove the shell from shrimp, but leave the fantail

Split down the back  and devein.

In a bowl mix the eggs, milk, baking powder  and vinegar

Marinate the shrimp for at least an hour in that mixture.

When done marinating, remove shrimp, sprinkle with your favorite seasoning, dip in flour, then deep fry at 380 degrees F for no longer than 1 1\2 mins.

This recipe yields 3 – 4 servings, so if you are tailgating, adjust amounts to the servings you need.
