These were nice and crispy when first taken out of the fryer, but after sitting for just a bit, the batter lost its crispiness, so by the time we'd fried the last of the shrimp, the first ones were somewhat soggy. Very easy to do though.
Great, light crust! I've tried dozens of recipes for shrimp, usually with heavy flour crust--be sure to use the baking powder--this one is light, quick, easy. It has good flavor (adjust with Tony's, Ball's, etc to taste), try different oils (corn, veg, peanut) for another different taste. We chopped okra & squash ahead, dipped in leftover batter after shrimp finished--quick fried veggies for sides. Only seconds to cook, whole meal ready in a hurry--one fry pan, quick clean up!
Hi my name is Bob. My mom named me a very plain name so I like to eat very plain things. So I guess I must like this.... Get some juice afer if you enjoy flavor. Blech!
I tried this recipe and it was delicious.... instead of draining on a paper towel, I placed the shrimp on my wire rack. The batter remained crispy.
I screwed up somewhere along the way, so I have shrimp topped on breading, it's still delicious.
Very good. I will reduce the salt next time as shrimp taste salty to me already.
These were delightful and simple to make! It only took 30 minutes MAX. Rather than seasoned salt I used salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. I also used the baking soda, as recommended. I had leftover batter, so I fried some asparagus and that was yummy, too! My DH and I put the shrimp on our salad, but they're a great pop-in-the mouth snack, too. Thanks for sharing this with us! :o)
This batter was excellent! My family loved it. It was quite light and crisp in texture. I used salt,pepper, and garlic powder as seasoning instead of seasoned salt. I did use the beer and baking powder as suggested. It was very good on onion rings, too. Yum!
My dh would have given this a 5, I would have used a 3, so 4 is the average. He loved it, I found it way to crispy with nothing underneath, no breading or batter of any kind, just a dry crunch that broke into many pieces as you bit into it-very dry and brittle. Not bad tasting, just nothing there. Personal preference.
This was delish! Made exactly as directed. Had a little leftover batter, so I dipped some onion into it...made pretty decent rings too! I rarely ever deep fry, so I'm glad that the once a year that I did, I chose this recipe! Thanks!
