Kitchen Tip : Spicy Crispy Fried Shrimp

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound (16-20) Large Raw Shrimp, Peeled and Deveined

  • 12 Ounces Tony’s Seafood Marinade

  • 1 Cup Flour

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Powder

  • 3 Eggs, Whisked

  • 2 Cups Panko Bread Crumbs

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

  • Tony’s BOLD Creole Seasoning

  • Canola Oil

  • Clear

Directions

  1. Add your shrimp to a bowl and pour over the marinade. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes in the fridge.
  2. Set up three shallow bowls. In one bowl, place the flour and whisk in the garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper. In a second bowl, add eggs and beat with whisk until egg yolks and whites are combined. Finally, in a third bowl, add panko bred crumbs and red pepper and whisk.
  3. Add the canola oil to a deep fryer and bring to 350°F. Take 4-5 shrimp at a time and dredge them through the flour and shake off excess. Add the shrimp to the egg wash to get coated, and covered in panko bread crumbs.
  4. Place in the fryer and cook for about 5 minutes until golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to remove shrimp and place on a long baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle with Tony’s BOLD Creole Seasoning and serve!
