Do you love seafood??? I know I do. Crabs, Salmon, Shrimp you name it, I will indulge.  Please don’t judge me.  As a kid, I remember during the summertime at my grandmother’s house having fish fries.  Man…let me tell you, I was in heaven when I received my plate.

My mother didn’t fry much so it was a treat to me when I did receive the blessing. As a result, I believe I have a fried food weakness. If you say fried anything, I want a piece. That brings me to this JUICY, MOIST, and CRUNCHY Cajun Fried Shrimp!

When my family and I had these succulent sensational shrimp for dinner, they barely could make it out of the grease, let alone to the plate.  They didn’t stand a chance.  When we finally sat down to eat they were always almost gone.  Those were the good ole times.

If you enjoy shrimp and fried foods, make this on a Saturday night with some sweet potato fries, and you will not regret it!

    It doesn’t get more basic than this. This is how 99.9% of restaurants and home cooks fry shrimp. Just add your favorite seasoning to the flour or egg wash and your in business!
    Great job, Dionne!
