These shrimp were wonderful.This was the first time that I have ever made deep fried shrimp, and it turned out wonderful. It appears to me that the problems with the negative views were due to cooking stupidity. These shrimp are arsons, they don't start grease fires...people do! I love them, and I will make them again. Great with steak! A+ to the person who submitted it! P.S It was helpful to scale it down, 4 lbs is a TON of shrimp!
I am so very dissapointed in this dish. I wanted to do it for a dinner party, I bought 23$ in shrimp and started to make it
well............DISASTER!!! The breading was so hard and it started a greese fire in my kitchen!
I thought i would give it another try and try my deep fryer............even worse. Do not use this recipe. I am sorry to
whoever posted it here but.... it was very bad!
this is the recipe my husband likes it very much.
I always use jumbo shrimps to prepare it.And anybody who tried it likes it.
I do not know who review this recipe but was not honest enough to judge like that.I think she or he doesn't know anything about seafood that's why easily messed with that.
Did not like at all. Will never make again.
Grease fire? O.K., whatever. We hadn't had fried shrimp in quite a while, so I thought the kids would enjoy it for a change. The other nice change was not using bread crumbs. I did scale this down, added a lot more seasonings and coated my shrimp with flour before the batter mixture (to help the batter adhere better). These took only minutes to cook in my fry daddy. Thanks Ladan!
I agree with most of the reviewers...this is bland. You do need to add seasonings to the flour...I used Emeril's Essence (like another reviewer suggested). Not my favorite fried shrimp recipe...but it was ok. I don't think I will use this one again, but thanks for the post.
I have changed my review of this recipe. After having used it several times I noticed that the batter sticks to the bottom of the fryer's basket. The first (or maybe second on one of my lucky days) batch comes out fine, no problems at all. After that it's all downhill.
Give the recipe a try, you might have better luck than me - I'm no batter guru to start playing around to see what I'm doing wrong.
Thank you for the recipe anyway, it's always good to try new things :)
i have to give this recipie 0 stars, this may be okay for those of you who dont live in the South. But where Im from we actually like FLAVOR in our food. For anyone who is actually considering using this.....please use seasoning!! your family will thank you for it.
