Brenda Campbell’s Fried Shrimp


These fried shrimp are as good and tasty as you’d get in any restaurant.


  • 2 pounds peeled shrimp
  • Red pepper and salt to taste
  • 1-2 bottles of beer
  • 1-2 cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • Oil for frying


Step 1

In a bowl, sprinkle peeled shrimp with red pepper and salt. Shrimp lends itself well to the taste of red pepper. Pour enough beer just to cover the shrimp.

Step 2

Break an egg into the mixture and add enough flour to the mixture to make a batter.

Step 3

For best results soak overnight in the refrigerator, although shrimp can be fried after an hour or two of soaking.

Step 4

When ready to fry, add flour in a Ziploc bag and shrimp (without crowding) and shake to coat the shrimp with the flour.

Step 5

Place shrimp in heated oil and cook just until they are a light golden brown and shrimp start to float in the oil.
