  • 1 Pound Shrimp, Peeled and Deveined

  • 1 Large Egg

  • 1 Cup Flour

  • 1/4 Cup Cornstarch

  • 1 Cup Club Soda, Very Cold

  • Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning, to Taste

  • Italian Seasoning, to Taste

  • Vegetable Oil

  • 1/4 Cup Buffalo Sauce

  • 1/4 Cup Honey

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter

  • Cayenne Pepper, to Taste

  1. Season shrimp with Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the cornstarch, flour, Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning and Italian seasoning in a bowl. Then which in the egg and then the club soda until well combined. It’s okay to have a few lumps in the batter. If you feel the batter is too thick, add more club soda to get the right consistency.
  3. Add oil to a heavy-bottomed pot and heat up to about 350°F over medium-high heat.
  4. Dip the shrimp into te batter and then add to the oil to fry for about 2-5 minutes, or until browned.
  5. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to soak up any excess oil and repeat until all shrimp are fried.
  6. Next, stir together the buffalo sauce, butter and honey in a microwave-safe bowl.
  7. Microwave for about 90 seconds or until butter is melted.
  8. Stir in cayenne pepper and more Tony’s seasoning. Taste and adjust seasoning to your preference.
  9. Dump shrimp into a large bowl and pour sauce over them. Toss until fully coated.
  10. Serve with favorite dipping sauce, like Tony’s Ranch Dressing, and enjoy!
