  1. Grease 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. Run a sharp knife along each shrimp's back and open slightly. Place shrimp in a large bowl of cold water.
  3. Whisk eggs in a large bowl until smooth. Drain shrimp and add to egg mixture; mix with your hands to combine and coat.
  4. Mix flour, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and cornstarch together in a large bowl. Dredge shrimp, a few at a time, in flour until well-coated, including the opening in the backs. Place battered shrimp on baking sheets.
  5. Chill shrimp until batter is set, about 30 minutes.
  6. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan.
  7. Fry shrimp, in batches, until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes per batch. Test one to make sure shrimp is cooked through. Transfer to paper towel-lined bowl to drain.
  8. Place buttery spread, cayenne pepper sauce, and garlic powder in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat until sauce is combined; stir in corn syrup.
  9. Divide shrimp among serving bowls. Stir in sauce until shrimp are completely covered.
