Serves 6

Batter fried shrimp Ingredients:

  • 1½ pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¾ tsp. seasoned salt
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • Oil for deep frying

Batter fried shrimp Preparation:

  1. Preheat oil to 350 degrees. Combine ½ cup oil and egg; beat well. Add remaining ingredients except oil for frying and stir until well blended.
  2. Dip shrimp into batter to coat. Drop shrimp into hot oil and fry for 30-60 seconds or until golden brown. Remove with slotted spoon; drain on paper towel.

Chef's Tip:

Add a ½ tsp. of baking powder to batter to make a much lighter crust, or use beer instead of milk for a barley flavor.

Beverage suggestions:

Light lager, dark or amber beer
