Fried Breaded Shrimp



  • 1/4 cup flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons vodka
  • 3/4 cup fine bread crumbs
  • 40 large raw shrimp, shelled, but with tails intact
  • Oil (for frying)


  1. Mix flour with a little salt and pepper and place in a bowl.
  2. In a second bowl beat well the egg and vodka.
  3. In a third bowl place the bread crumbs mixed with salt and pepper.
  4. Toss the shrimp, one at a time, in the flour; dip into egg mixture; toss in the bread crumbs to coat.
  5. Drop into hot oil (360 degrees F) and deep fry quickly until golden brown. Do not over-cook. Shrimp may be breaded several hours ahead and refrigerated until time to fry.
