Shrimp, shrimp, glorious, fried Maine shrimp. It's the shrimpin' time of year, folks, so pull out all the recipes, and get in as much as you can while they last.
I made these for the Ravens game on Sunday, and they took a lot longer to fry than I expected - the entire 3rd quarter, ack!
Needless to say, I will not be missing a minute of the AFC Championship this Sunday.
I used a batter from the Joy of Cooking and fried them for about 5 minutes in lots of hot canola oil.
from Joy of Cooking
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
3/4 cup beer
2 eggs, separated
Mix dry ingredients, two egg yolks, and beer. Cover and let sit at room temperature for 2 hours. Whip egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Fold into batter until incorporated.
Dip shrimp and fry away!
