Deep Crispy Fried Shrimps Recipe

I love seafood especially shrimps, whether they are deep fried or steamed.Whenever I go to a seafood restaurant like Captain D's, I usually order fried shrimps. Unfortunately,  they do not make them  like they use to. Recently the one in my town's food is very greasy . So I decided to try and make my own shrimps at home. While I was walking through the international isle at my local grocery store, I was drawn to an item in the Asian isle.  I found this bread crumbs coating to make fried shrimps. You guys know that I had to try this product. The fried shrimps on the box look so delicious. I picked up the ingredients to prepare this delicious shrimp appetizer. I put my own twist into the recipe and came up with these delicious shrimps.

You will need the following ingredients:
1 cup of unpeeled shrimps or frozen cooked shrimps.
Garlic salt
Seasoning salt
1/2 cup of flour
2 cups of vegetable oil
Black pepper
Lemon juice
1 teaspoon of Green seasoning
1 beaten egg
1 cup of Chinese bread crumbs
1/2 cup of flour

Shrimp Prep
Place shrimps in a bowl
Pour 1/3 cup of lemon juice over the shrimps
Soak for 10 seconds
Rinse under cool water
Add 1/3 tsp of seasoning salt to your taste
Sprinkle some garlic salt
1-2 tsps of green seasoning
1 pinch of black pepper
Mix in the seasoning and spices into the shrimps
Set aside
Preheat 1-2 cups of vegetable oil in a skillet
Beat 1 large egg in a separate bowl
Add flour and bread crumbs into a bowl or a Ziploc  bag

First coat shrimps one at a time in beaten egg
then coat them with breadcrumbs mix
Place all the coated shrimps on a plate
Add each shrimp to preheated oil 
Once shrimps get golden brown, remove from heat
Place on 2 paper towels to drain the excess oil.

This dish can be served as a cocktail for parties, dinner or movie night.
Serve with your favorite deep and condiments!
