FRIED SHRIMP JUST LIKE LONG JOHN SILVER’S
Growing up in Corbin, Kentucky, we loved it when we got to go fishing with our dad. We ate plenty of fish, we never ate shrimp as kids, but we love batter coated shrimp today. The typical side dish for us is our Southern Macaroni and Cheese. It is any time we cook any kind of fish. Our kids love the crumbs, so we always make extra batter and fry up those delightful golden crumbs.
We honestly love the shrimp at Long John Silver’s so creating this batter was a must! Our batter is the magic in this recipe. Once you’ve realized how amazing our Fried Shrimp Recipe is, you’ll appreciate that is better than anything offered at any restaurant. The appearance is magnificent, the taste is amazing… that perfect golden brown with the white shrimp interior.
Our Fried Shrimp is not just beautiful, the batter makes it delightful, and the shrimp is light and delicate. This shrimp recipe will be a huge hit for the holidays and can be paired with nearly any side dish.
The appearance of our Batter Fried Shrimp is incredible. This will be your perfect Fried Shrimp Recipe!
