How do I make crispy shrimp that is baked?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
This is my go to recipe from http://www.imadedinner.net/2010/05/24/crispy-crunchy/
Preheat the oven to 375*
Step 1: remove the shell, tail, and vein from your shrimp (or cheat like me and buy them frozen!)
Step 2: Lightly coat the shrimp in flour. A large ziplock bag comes in handy here.
Step 3: Dip the floured shrimp into a mixture of 2 beaten eggs and 1/4 c. water.
Step 4: Coat the shrimp in panko bread crumbs and place (this is the important part) on a rack atop a baking sheet. This allows for air to circulate around all sides of the shrimp to make all-around crunch.
Step 5: Sprinkle the shrimp with cayenne pepper and either smoked paprika or Bacon Salt.
Step 6: Bake until crispy and cooked through, about 20 minutes. Broil a few minutes to brown them.
Step 7: DEVOUR!
