First off, let me start by saying these are the most amazingly delicious shrimp that I have ever had. My mouth is literally salivating right now just thinking about them.
The first time I had shrimp like this was at Bonefish Grill. They were absolutely delicious and I couldn’t stop eating them. So, I wanted to try this recipe out. Man were they just as good.
If you’re serving these as an appetizer, I suggest putting the shrimp on a platter of shredded lettuce. However, if you want to make this a meal, like Taylor and I did, fry up some tortillas and generously place the shrimp into your taco; top with green onions and shredded lettuce.
E N J O Y
- 1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 4-5 teaspoons chili garlic sauce, such as Sriracha sauce
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon rice vinegar Coupons
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup milk
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon dried basil
- 8 to 12 cups vegetable oil
- Combine all ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl; cover and set aside.
- Combine beaten egg with milk in shallow bowl; set aside.
- Combine flour, panko, salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and basil in another shallow bowl; set aside.
- Bread the shrimp by first coating each with the breading mixture. Dip breaded shrimp into the egg and milk mixture, and then back into the breading. Arrange the coated shrimp on a plate and pop them into the fridge for at least 20 minutes. This step will help the breading to stick on the shrimp when they are frying.
- Heat oil in deep fryer to 350 degrees F. Use amount of oil required by your fryer.
- When oil is hot, fry shrimp 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on rack or paper towels.
- When all shrimp has been fried, drop the shrimp into a large bowl. Spoon about Â¼ cup of sauce over shrimp and stir gently to coat.
- Fry up some tortillas and make these into tacos!
