I tried this recipe and loved it. I like the crunchy taste to it.

This an excellent recipe the taste is great. I only wish there was a tiny bit more of a crust on the shrimp. Next time I will dip them in a bit of egg before shaking. I added the Parmesan cheese...

These shrimp were really good and very easy to make. I used 8-12 count shrimp and they were excellent paired with a steak for surf and turf. Thanks so much for posting the recipe.

I used 3 tsp total of the salt and dipped in beaten eggs before shaking in flour mixture. Turned out awesome! Kids said it was like a dish from a restaurant, "How did you do that?!"
