Best Fried Cajun Shrimp

2003-12-08

There are different ways to prepare and season shrimp prior to frying. This recipe gives shrimp a distinct and unique flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp mustard (not heaping)
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • 2 lbs shrimp, cleaned and devined
  • 3/4 cup white corn meal
  • 3/4 cup white corn flour (masa)
  • Oil for frying

Directions

Step 1

In a glass bowl combine together the milk and the mustard. Season the shrimp with the onion powder and cayenne.

Step 2

In another bowl, combine the corn meal and corn flour.

Step 3

Dunk the seasoned shrimp in the milk mixture. Then dredge the shrimp with the corn meal and flour mixture and place in frying pan. (The oil is usually hot enough when a small pinch of flour dances on the surface of the oil). Fry until the shrimp float.

Step 4

Remove and drain on paper towels. To keep warm, preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place shrimp in oven until ready to eat.

Or for a heart healthy way to prepare - Place shrimp on a cookie sheet that has been covered with foil and sprayed with Pam or other cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.
