Fried Shrimp


FRIED SHRIMP
Morrison's Cafeteria Copycat Recipe

Serves 6

2 pounds shrimp, cleaned and tails left on (about 3 dozen medium to large)
peanut oil, for deep frying

Dredging Mixture
1 cup flour, sifted
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1⁄2 teaspoon white pepper

Batter:
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 1⁄4 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons paprika
3 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
1 egg, slightly beaten
3 cups cold water

Blot shrimp dry with paper towels and set aside. Heat several inches of oil to 350 degrees in a deep, heavy pot or deep fryer. Combine the dredging mixture in a shallow dish.

Meanwhile, whisk the baking powder, salt and paprika into the flour. Whisk in the egg and water, blending well. Hold shrimp by the tail, dredge, dip in batter and slip into hot oil. Fry a few at a time just until batter is golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
