My mother-in-law was an integral part of my life. She was one of the kindest, women I have known, aside from my own mom. She was a treasure and her cooking was also a large part of our life. The easy-to-make recipe will have your Lenten season shining! We dined together often and she was always cooking for her large family who appreciated every bite. This particular recipe is easy to make, and allows you to cook shrimp like the pros. I appreciate this recipe because it is not hard to make, uses very little ‘stuff’ in the kitchen and is so easy to clean up, you don’t have much to do, other than the pan or the fryer. Let’s lavishly live life out loud and cook up some great fried shrimp.
PEGGY’S SIMPLE FRIED SHRIMP
A tip for you is that you can use a Plastic Zip Bag instead of a Brown Bag. The Brown Bag is just how we have always done it. But you can see in the video I used a plastic bag.
Make certain to place the fried shrimp on layered paper towels to allow the grease to seep away from the shrimp. I also suggest making sure that the shrimp is defrosted, and rinsed, and while it should be moist if it is too wet the breading will not stick. You are not dunking this in egg, it is more of a dredging that is taking place but the crunch is phenomenal. Do coat these with a bit of salt and pepper, or you could use other spices as your taste prefer. Make certain to throw the bag you use out as it will be contaminated with raw fish. In addition do not save any of the flour that you dredged as it will be contaminated with raw fish as well. Lavishly live food out loud with this easy to create recipe. This post is dedicated to my Mother-in-Law Peggy, who made these every Lenten season for us every year since I met her 20+ years ago.
