Quick Fried Shrimp
Shrimp so good and juicy, it's hard to believe how easy it is!
Large uncooked Shrimp
1/2 cup flour
1 cup Canola Oil
For a meal or horderves, this can be made from frozen or fresh uncooked shrimp. It's best to use large shrimp. Pull out the amount you think you will need and allow to defrost if they are frozen. Place oil in a cooking pot and set the pot to med-high heat on your stove.
Peel the shrimp while leaving the tail on. Wash and devein the shrimp by cutting slightly along the back and remove anything that is not the color of the shrimp meat. Then take your knife and starting at the tail, slice the shrimp in half lengthwise just stopping short of the top. This makes your shrimp longer and will look pretty when they cook.
Place the shrimp in the flour and coat it thoroughly. The moistness of the shrimp will allow the flour to adhere. No seasoning is necessary as the shrimp will provide all the flavor. Test your oil by adding a pinch of flour to it. If it bubbles-your ready to go! Slowly and carefully add your shrimp one at a time to the oil. They may pop and sputter at first, so be careful! Allow to cook for approximately 2 1/2 minutes on each side and remove onto a plate lined with paper towel.
Serve on their own or with a rice as a meal!
