Fried Shrimp recipe

No need to drive out to a fried shrimp shack to get quality fried shrimp; this recipe brings it home for you. Enjoy these on movie night with the family or a group of friends. Makes 4 servings.

Ingredients:

20 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
Salt and white pepper, to taste
2 medium eggs
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
1 cup puffed rice cereal
¾ cup corn flak cereal
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 to 4 cups vegetable oil, for frying

Directions:

  1. Season the shrimp with the salt and white pepper.

  2. In a small bowl, lightly beat eggs and mustard together.

  3. In a separate medium bowl, crush the rice cereal and corn cereal into very small crumbs.

  4. Place flour in separate medium bowl. Dip each shrimp into the flour, then the egg/mustard mixture, then the cereal mixture. Set aside on a large plate until ready to fry.

  5. Pour 1 to 2 inches of vegetable oil into a deep pot and heat to 350°F, as measured by a deep fat frying thermometer. Fry the shrimp in batches for about 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Remove and drain on a plate lined with paper towels.

Your best pairings for fried shrimp are the classics: French fries, mashed potatoes, and salty collards or bacon-braised greens. Choose a dry, crisp wine to cut the heavy fat, such as Sauvignon Blanc.
