Ok, I gave this recipe a 3/5 ONLY because I had to yield the recipe down to 2 servings which kind've confused me with the ingredient adjustments PLUS I only had Gia Russa bread crumbs instead of the recommended Kikkoman Panko. I also didn't have the freshest of cooking oils for deep frying usage and so on. The end result was tasty but seemed alil more on the 'eggy-heavier' side instead of on the 'light-crunchy' side that I was aiming for. A recipe I am willing to try again with the proper preparation needed but one I would prefer not to go through the hassle of doing if repeated with what I was working with. Read More

THE BEST fried shrimp ever! I've eaten lots of fried shrimp in restaurants - and nothing has been better than this! I followed others advice and reduced the salt and omitted the pepper and replaced them with a teaspoon of Old Bay. I also used only two eggs - which was plenty. AND I dipped the shrimp into the egg twice -- once before dredging in flour and then again after dredging in flour (before coating with panko). I also found that one cup of panko was plenty. Another tip -- put them in the freezer for about 10 - 15 minutes after coating and before frying… I do this with everything we fry (makes the batter adhere better). I fried them in 2" of oil in our deep fryer. Read More

The 1st time I made this, I followed the recipe exactly as written and I thought the batter was to "bready" and it was lacking in flavor sooo the 2nd time around I did 2 eggs and added some tonies... came out great!! love the panko bread crumbs in tis as well! Read More

We really like fried shrimp & this recipe is the best I've come across. I used about 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning in 1/2 c. flour and about the same amount in 1 c. panko crumbs. Used only 2 beaten eggs. Just the right amt of ingred for a 14oz pkg frozen jumbo shrimp. Deep fried in batches of 6 for about 3 min @ 350 degrees. Dipped in Cross & Blackwell seafood sauce......yummmmm. The 2 of us ate everyone of them!! Good recipe. Read More

Excellent recipe! I used two eggs, and instead of salt & pepper, used a bit of Old Bay. It's a rarity when all the kids like the same thing, but this one worked for everyone! Thanks! Read More
