Last weekend we had some beautiful sunny weather so we took the boat down to Cocodrie, LA and did a little fishing. The fish were biting but unfortunately, all undersized so it was a catch and release kind of day. On the way home, we stopped and bought some fresh, 16-20 count shrimp to bring home. Troy loves fried shrimp and I made sure to take pictures of the steps to share with you. It's very easy and tastes great!
First, peel and de-vein the shrimp. You can make quick work of this by removing the heads and then raking the prong of a fork along the back. This step will open the shell and remove the vein all at once. It takes a little practice at first.
Once you have all of your shrimp battered and ready, add peanut oil into your Fry Daddy up to the fill line. Heat to 350 degrees. Once the light turns off, your oil is ready for the battered shrimp. Place 15 shrimp at a time into the hot oil and fry until golden brown.
The batter is crispy and slightly spicy, just the way we like it. We like to enjoy our fried shrimp with some Dat Ketchup. Enjoy
In other news, this has been a wild week of storms for South Louisiana. We did not get much from Marco; but, we still are waiting to see what Laura will bring. Praying that everyone in Louisiana and Texas will stay safe!
