Panko Fried Shrimp
1 pound 26-30 Shrimp, or x large shrimp, cleaned, deveined and butterflied
1 ½ panko bread crumbs
½ cup flour
2 Tablespoons water
¼ teaspoon seasoned salt
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
Canola or vegetable oil for frying
Season shrimp with seasoning salt, salt and black pepper and set aside. In a bowl add eggs and water and whisk.
Add flour to one plate and panko crumbs to another plate. Dip each piece of shrimp in the egg, then flour, then back into the egg, then the panko bread crumbs.
Place coated shrimp on a clean plate and set aside while the oil heats up. In a large frying pan fill with 1 - 2 inches of oil and turn heat oil to 350 degree Fahrenheit.
When oil comes to temperature add shrimp to pan without overcrowding the frying pan. You may have to do this in 2 or three batches. Cook and turn shrimp until both sides are golden brown. Remove to cooling rack.
You can serve these with cocktail sauce, make a poboy, or just plain with a squeeze of lemon if you prefer. Enjoy.
