Fried shrimp

Ingredients list:

°1 pound.  Peeled and deveined jumbo shrimp.

°Half a cup. All-purpose flour.

°Half a teaspoon of salt and black pepper.

°A teaspoon of Cajun seasoning.

°2 large eggs, at room temperature.

°1 1/2 cups. Panko bread crumbs.

°1 cup cooking oil.

*To prepare:

Step 1:

Combine the flour, salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning in a medium mixing bowl or shallow dish, using a whisk. Cajun season may also be use.

The second step:

In a separate bowl (or plate), whisk the eggs well until well blended. Spread panko bread crumbs in bottom of third mixing bowl.

Step 3:

To prepare shrimp, coat both sides in the flour mixture, then shake off the excess. Next, the prawns are covered with the egg mixture, and dipped in it.

The fourth step:

To finish coating the prawns with panko breadcrumbs on each side, turn the prawns over and press the breadcrumbs down each side of the prawns.

Fifth step:

To cook the shrimp, heat the oil in a large saucepan to 350°F (175°C) and fry the shrimp in small batches for about 1 minute, or until completely opaque. Be careful not to stack the shrimp while frying.

Sixth step:

To remove each shrimp, use kitchen tongs, and place them, one at a time, on a cooling rack set over a paper towel-lined plate. Continue in the same way with the rest of the prawns.
