  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Working one at a time, dip shrimp into beaten egg, allowing any excess egg to drip back into the bowl. Press into bread crumbs to coat both sides. Place the breaded shrimp, unstacked, onto a plate. Repeat with remaining shrimp.

  3. Lower breaded shrimp carefully into preheated oil in batches. Fry until crispy and golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with remaining breaded shrimp.
