My hubby, kids and myself all loved this recipe. Wonderful texture! I had extra large eggs and many reviewers said they only used two so that was all I used. I had lots left over. I don't think we have Old Bay in Western Canada so I am going to put that on my list of things to look for when I go on my next trip to the US. I've seen it mentioned in so many recipes on allrecipes.com it seems to be very popular! So I seasoned with sea salt and pepper as the recipe specified. The only thing I didn't do as specified is use 2 inches of oil. I probably had about a half an inch of oil in the pot. I tested the temp with a thermometer and it was just over 200 degrees when I put the first shrimp in. I know that the hotter the oil the less opportunity for it to be absorbed by the food but I was worried about smoking and splattering so I was a bit of a chicken to get it much hotter (based on how high I usually set my stove temp). I put the finished shrimp on paper towels to drain and ground a little bit more sea salt on top.
