There is'nt any of us who visit the Chinese buffet or restaurant and wouldn't serve or order for deep fried breaded prawns/shrimp. Cause I'm not a restaurant freak, always wanted to try these at home... and finally made it, and got it right the first time.
1 lb Jumbo Shrimp,Deshelled,tailed
1 cup Flour,
1 Egg beaten
1 Cup Japanese Bread Crumbs, (Avialable in Asian Stores)
(Please do not use the regular bread crumbs or should I say Bread powder)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp Lemon Pepper (Optional)
Oil for deep frying.
1 Tbsp Soy Sause
1 Tbsp Oyster Sause
1 Tbsp Worcester Sause
1 Tbsp Teriyaki Sause
Make a marinade with the sauces if using. Keep aside
Add salt, Black pepper, Lemon Pepper (if using) to the shrimp to coat them well.
Now add shrimp to the marinade, keep aside for 10 minutes or so.
Heat oil in deep frying pan.
Now take each shrimp from the marinade, coat it first with Flour, then Egg, and finally with bread crumbs.
Deep fry in hot oil, for 5 minutes or so.
Drain from oil and serve with choice of your sauces.
What can be more comforting food than these breaded shrimps. Therefore I'm sending this to Meeta, who is hosting the Monthly Mingle - Comfort Foods.
This can be an Evening snack, Starter or even go with the main course with some seasoned rice. We enjoyed these with the Cabbage fried rice.
I'll post the Cabbage Fried Receipe next.
