Fried shrimp is a meal that may be served as an appetizing main course, an amazing dish to bring to a party, or both. You will have no difficulty preparing it, and it’s really a lot less scary than you may imagine it would be.
INGREDIENTS YOU NEED:
Extra large shrimp, I used 1½ pounds peeled.
½ Cup.Of all-purpose flour.
1½ Tsp.Of smoked paprika.
½ Tsp.Of garlic powder.
Freshly cracked black pepper.
2 whole eggs.
2 Cups.Of « Panko bread crumbs ».
Canola oil, for deep frying I used about 8 cups.
Minced fresh parsley.
1st Step – Whisk together the flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a dish that is about medium in size and shallow.
2nd Step – Whisk the eggs in a second medium shallow dish until they are uniform in color and texture. Make a third plate out of panko and set it aside (a pie plate works well here).
3rd Step – While you are coating the shrimp, bring the oil to the big pot to a temperature of 350 degrees. Note that the shrimp should have a small coating of moisture on the outside; if this is not the case, rinse the shrimp in water and make sure to drain it thoroughly before moving on to the next step.
4th Step – In a bowl, combine the flour and salt. Dredge the shrimp in this mixture. Move to the bowl containing the egg mixture and coat on both sides. After that, complete the process by covering both sides with panko while pushing it into the panko to ensure a strong bond.
5th Step – Fry the shrimp in batches (no more than ten at a time) until they are completely cooked through, which should take about a minute. If you’re working in batches, you should wait until the oil reaches 350 degrees again.
6th Step – To remove shrimp from the oil, you can make use of a big spider, and then place the shrimp on a baking sheet that has been prepared with two layers of paper towels so that they can drain. Proceed in the same manner as the remaining shrimp.
7th Step – If preferred, top shrimp with chopped parsley before serving with lemon wedges and the sauce of your choice that goes well with shrimp.
