This is an easy dish for ball games or to take to parties. I like to make sure additional sauce covers the shrimp when served. Serve with blue cheese or ranch dressing, if desired.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

  • Place cornstarch in a shallow bowl and lightly dip shrimp into the cornstarch.

  • Fry shrimp, working in batches, in the hot oil until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer shrimp to a paper towel-lined plate using a slotted spoon. Add shrimp to the butter-hot sauce and allow to sit for 3 to 4 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If taking to get-together, just leave the shrimp in the sauce mix and make sure it stays warm.

this is our go to buffalo shrimp recipe...no egg needed..and i use franks red hot with just enough butter to add flavor..i use canola oil after just coating the shrimp lightly in cornstarch..done!! we eat this once a week..we are low carb lifers now..this is pretty low carb..aside from the oil and butter its not a bad meal...use less butter if you want and if you fry quick there is little oil absorbed..dry them off on a paper towel..perfect!
