I’ve been having a craving for fried shrimp for a while now. My neighbor Michelle made some and gave us a taste and it only made me want some even more! Luckily when I went visit my parents this past weekend, they gave me a bag of frozen shrimp. I knew right away what their destiny was!
1 can coconut milk
1/2 – 1 tsp. mustard
a few dashes of Louisiana Gold Hot sauce
Seasonings: Tony’s, Salt, garlic powder and onion powder
Peel the shrimp except for the very end tail part. Devein and butterfly. Mix the coconut milk, egg, hot sauce, mustard and seasonings in a bowl and add the shrimp. Allow to marinate at least thirty minutes, or longer if you have the time. Meanwhile, make your flour batter. Just mix up the flour with the abovementioned seasonings until it suits your preference. Heat oil in fryer, toss the shrimp in the flour batter and fry until golden and delicious!
The Verdict: Well it hit the spot! They were crispy and well seasoned and you could faintly taste the hint of coconut, without it being overpowering. The mustard adds a nice little something extra, also! We served ours with potato stuff and fried stuffed jalapeno peppers, which are my husbands recipe so I’ll have to get that from him!
