I'm not fond of batter. I generally went with the best dry coating I could find. Generally Zatarains .

Bill, batter may not be the best word. I just need an idea of what is a good coating for frying.

Batter-Fried Shrimp Recipe - Food.com

DIRECTIONS. Preheat oil to 350 degrees. Combine 1/2 cup oil and egg; beat well. Add remaining ingredients except oil for frying and stir until well blended. Dip shrimp into batter to coat. Drop shrimp into hot oil and fry for 30-60 seconds or until golden brown. Remove with slotted spoon; drain on paper towel.

Lots of different ways to do it. What do you like for fish? just the same can be used for shrimp, like cornmeal. I do buttermilk and flour sometimes, others I do flour, spices and egg, add Panko for real crunch. . Just cornstarch coating can give a crunch, without the heaviness of coatings. Key is to have your oil 350-375 degrees. Too hot and you burn the coating and get a bad taste, too low and the batter is greasy. Medium shrimp only take 30-60 seconds to get golden, and larges take 60-90. Good luck!!!

I use this and they always turn out great. It is already seasoned and I just go by the directions. I make them 4-5 hours ahead and freeze them.

Thanks for the input. We use cornmeal for crappie and thought shrimp we have eaten before had a different coating.

I like to use the same cormeal mix for my fish and shrimp, not a fan of flour or Panko. Louisiana blue bag (or blue jug). Dip in milk (or water) batter and fry in oil 350-375 (I like 375/ crispy). Be ready, it happens fast.

I like to let the shrimp set up awhile when I use the dry mix. It results in less crumbs getting in the oli.

Good. I use seasoned fine ground corn meal by itself sometimes as well.

I have done that and it does, but I don’t like the texture of that crust at all.

Just batter and fry fresh, if you want a good crust.

Batter means roll in seasoned cornmeal, not a liquid batter.

Batter: Whole Buttermilk 2 cups, spicy brown mustard 2-3 ounces.

Breading: Zatarains or Louisiana, I like the crispy or the southern.

So I tried the Louisiana mix While it was good both my wife and I both felt it was too salty for our taste. Next time I’ll try corn meal
like we like to do crappie. Thanks for all the input.

I have also done them that way. I first let them set for awhile and pack them with a squeeze of my hand.

We ate @ Saltgrass last night for my grand daughters birthday. I ordered the Shrimp because I don`t like eating steak at restaurants. Their shrimp looked and tasted like they had used this batter mix. It was almost as good as mine, but not quite.

It was really pretty good. Red Lobster has always been our seafood favorite. We eat there only a couple of times a year because it is not near our home. The last few times we ate there all of the portions were smaller(even the salad)and prices keep increasing. The size of shrimp they are using for their fried shrimp is smaller also. I guess they think people won`t notice.
