Hello there, man. This is excellent. I guarantee you will not be disappointed by this delectable shrimp. We don't make fried foods very often in our house, so this was a special treat!




I'm a sucker for fried shrimp. It's one of my favorite things to order, but it's also the worst when you get it, and you can tell it came straight from the freezer into the fryer. When it comes to fried shrimp, the hand-made, spiced, extremely crunchy, undercooked, and excellent dipping sauce are all essential.



Ingredients include: 


+Scrumptious shrimp


12 large raw prawns, peeled but tails intact


° One-half cup vegetable oil


° 1 cup all-purpose flour


12 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel


° 1/2 teaspoon of salt


1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning


° 1 medium egg


1 tablespoon milk


° 1 cup bread crumbs (panko)


+To make Cajun Sauce


° 1/2 cup of mayonnaise


2 tablespoons sour cream


° 1 tbsp. of ketchup


1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning


Follow these steps:


Cajun seasoning

In a mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, ketchup, and Cajun seasoning. While preparing the shrimp, whisk together all of the ingredients and set aside.


Crunchy Cajun Shrimp

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, lemon zest, and Cajun seasoning. To ensure an even mix, use a fork to stir it in. After that, crack an egg into a bowl, add milk, and whisk with a fork. Place the panko on a plate next. Set up the stations in a line, beginning with flour, then eggs, and finally panko. Place a clean plate at the end of the shrimp assembly line when you're finished.


We nudge shrimp in flour with your left hand. Dip it in eggs, then in panko, with your right hand. Press the panko onto the shrimp until evenly coated. Place the shrimp on a clean plate and repeat with the remaining shrimp. Keeping one hand dry will help reduce stickiness and speed up the rusk baking process.


Putting oil in a cast iron skillet. There should be an inch of oil on the bottom. Adjust the amount if you're using a smaller or larger skillet. Heat the oven with the oil on high heat. When the oil is ready, sprinkling some breadcrumbs into it will cause it to sizzle. Don't put the shrimp in too soon.


Using tongs, place the shrimp in the pan. Try to keep them apart so the pan doesn't get too crowded and the shrimp cook evenly.


The shrimp were cooked for 90 seconds on each side. Turn the shrimp over gently, but if the bread begins with the rusk, allow more time. Until the bread is cooked, the shrimp will not stick to it.


Remove the shrimp from the pan and place them on a plate lined with paper towels. Serve immediately with Cajun sauce.


Have fun!
