Ingredients

  • 1 pound large shrimp
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup Frank’s Red hot sauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
  • 2 cups canola oil for frying
  • lemon wedge
  • dressing

Instructions

  • Peel and de-vein the shrimp if you have not purchased them already done. You may leave on the shrimp tails on for presentation. Set aside.
  • Combine the butter and Frank’s Red in a small pot and heat on low until melted. Keep warm.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and water until thoroughly combined. In a separate large bowl, combine the flour and seasoning salt. While working with one shrimp at a time, dip them by the tail into the egg, shake off the excess, and gently roll in flour. Be sure to coat all of the shrimp this way leaving them in the flour bowl as they are covered.
  • Place the flour bowl with the shrimp in the fridge to rest while you heat the oil in a deep pot. Oil should be 1½ – 2 inches deep and heated to at least 375 degrees F. Toss shrimp in flour once more to be sure all are thoroughly coated and carefully drop each into hot oil; frying 6-8 shrimp at a time. Fry the shrimp until they become golden brown; about 3 minutes. Remove carefully using a slotted spoon and let drain on a rack.
  • Just before serving drizzle with warm Buffalo sauce from saucepan that you have been keeping warm and serve with a lemon wedge and your favorite dressing for dipping.
