Directions

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Mix the peach preserves, horseradish, and mustard together in a small bowl until well blended; set aside.
  3. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, black pepper, basil, eggs, and beer in a large bowl until smooth.
  4. Add the shrimp in batches to the batter, turning to coat.
  5. Remove with a slotted spoon, shaking off excess batter.
  6. Fry the shrimp in the preheated oil until golden, about 2 minutes.
  7. Transfer the fried shrimp to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  8. Serve with the peach sauce.

I really wish I could give this 4 and a half stars- it's EXCELLENT! The sauce is amazing, spot on. The batter consistency and performance is wonderful. There's something missing with the shrimp, though. Not enough to ruin the recipe by a long-shot, but noticeable. I used Yuengling beer- maybe a stronger tasting beer would have helped? I think I would also have seasoned the shrimp itself before dipping in the batter. But seriously...my complaints are minor, this stuff is great!
