vegetable oil for frying
dry bread crumbs
1 1/4 teaspoons
uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
These were awesome!!! They had just the right amount of seasoning, so it wasn't too salty (which is what I was afraid of). My husband said we are never ordering popcorn shrimp from a restaurant again lol.
Made this tonight for friends and family and I asked them to rate it. A solid 5 stars from everyone. No changes. I prepared the recipe exactly as written. Thanks so much for posting. Will definitely make this again.
Really quick and easy!! and tastes great.
Made this recipe for a Christmas party and everyone loved it!!!! I followed the recipe exactly as it says above and it was a huge hit! If possible - buy the shrimp already peeled to speed up the process!
I made this for my family, and they were just speechless. A few times the breading part fell off, but it was still the BEST shrimp recipe EVER!
These were really good! I accidently tweaked the recipe by forgetting to add the milk to the egg mixture which didn't hurt a bit. I did have really big shrimp so I cut them into pieces made for the perfect bite. Definitely a keeper recipe here!!
It was excellent. This is one recipe that you can follow exactly and it tastes great without making any changes.
Excellent! Better than any restaurant! I cut up some big shrimp we had to make popcorn style. I made bread crumbs using left over hot dog buns. I toasted them on a 200 degree oven for about an hour and then ground them in the blender. Very kid friendly recipe too!
