This is a super delicious way to serve shrimp. We use extra large shrimp, that are butterflied, coated in flour and cornmeal crust and fried until golden brown.

  • Shell and devein the shrimp. leave the tails on.
  • With a sharp knife butterfly the shrimp cutting almost in half lengthwise, but not all the way through.
  • In a bowl mix the flour cornmeal, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Meanwhile heat oil in a large sauce pan or deep fryer to 360 degrees. About 4 inches of oil.
  • Rinse shrimp in water then add the corn meal mixture and coat each shrimp thoroughly.
  • Fry shrimp in batches. Do not over crowd pan.
  • Cook for about 4 minutes or until golden.
  • If shrimp browns too quickly, reduce the heat.
  • Serve with tartar or cocktail sauce.
