Batter Fried Shrimp
Batter Fried Shrimp

Portions: 10 Serving size: 3

Ingredients

2 pounds raw shrimp, chopped fine
2 cups onion, chopped fine
4 eggs, beaten
1 green bell pepper, chopped fine
1 bunch parsley, chopped fine
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons Salt-free Cajun seasoning
1/2 to 1 cup all-purpose white flour (adjust portion as needed)
Olive-oil for frying

Preparation

  1. Mix all of the ingredients except flour together in a mixing bowl.
  2. After mixing, gradually add flour. Continue adding flour a little at a time until mix gets thick and hangs on to the spoon.
  3. To deep fry, heat oil in a large skillet or deep-fryer. Drop medium-sized spoonful’s of shrimp batter into hot oil and cook until browned and crisp on both sides.
  4. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Serve hot.

Helpful hints

  • Mrs. Dash Cajun seasoning blend or Benoit’s Best Salt-Free Cajun seasoning.
  • Instead of frying you can form batter into patties and bake on a greased baking sheet at 350° F until golden brown.
  • Try crab or craw-fish instead of shrimp. Both are equally great!
