Firecracker Shrimp!

This is a recipe for the whole family to love! And as always I recommend getting any littles in the kitchen when you’re dredging, many hands make light work!


1 lb. of peeled, deveined, thawed shrimp


Ingredients for mix:

1 cup flour

1/2 cup corn meal

1 tbs garlic powder

1/2 tbs seasoning salt 🧂

1/2 tsp chili powder

Few dashes white pepper

You’ll also need three eggs 🥚 and panko bread crumbs.


Sauce:

3-4 tbs soy sauce

1tbs ketchup

1tbs strawberry jam

1tbs honey

1-2tbs gochujang

Dash garlic powder

1 tsp grated ginger

2 tsp sriracha

1-2tbs sugar

2tbs hot water

2tsp chili flake

3-4 tbs Mayo (optional)


To make:

Butterfly your shrimp, and combine your dry ingredients. In another bowl whisk three eggs along with a heaping tbs if your powdered mix. In a third bowl add about 2-3 cups plain panko breadcrumbs.


Dip shrimp that’s been butterflied and pat-dried in mix, then egg, then panko and set on a tray. Repeat and do all shrimp. Get someone to help :)


In a small bowl vigorously whisk all the sauce ingredients incorporating each one well in order.


Fry your shrimp in oil 1-2 mins on each side at about 375F. Or air fry at the same temp for anywhere 7-9 minutes. You have to keep an eye on them in the air fryer. And spritz them with cooking oil or it won’t crisp properly with the panko. It’ll burn instead.


I just hand dipped the shrimp quickly in the sauce and served over rice! Sprinkled a few extra chili flakes on top for color and flavor 🌶
