Light & Crispy Fried Shrimp Recipe......
I'm looking for a quick and easy recipe for fried shrimp. Not the thick and heavy battered kind. Something light and crispy where you're mostly eating shrimp....not batter.
Try using panko bread crumbs -- they're infinitely lighter and crunchier than western style bread crumbs. Just dip shrimp into egg beaten with a bit of milk, then coat with panko.
Make a light beer batter:
Equal parts rice flour and beer that's been open about an hour.
Dip lightly and deep fry.
You could do a combo of the two methods above. My mother always did a tempura batter (rice flour and soda water) followed by Japanese bread crumbs. It's fantastically crunchy but still more shrimp than batter.
