Fried Breaded Almond Shrimp

Shrimp or Prawn are versatile ingredients and commanly used in many culture cuisine.I'm a seafood lover,shrimp is one of my favourite dishes.While shrimp may be small, they are huge in their appeal as these deliciously clean and crisp tasting crustaceans can be served hot or cold and are the most popular seafood in the United States, next to canned tuna.Shrimp is an excellent source of protein and selenium. It is also a very good source of vitamin D, vitamin B12 and a good source of iron, phosphorus, omega-3 fatty acids, niacin, zinc, copper and magnesium. Preparing shrimp for consumption usually involves removing the head, shell, tail, and "sand vein". To make life easier,I bought headless shrimp instead of head on shrimp,but not pre-cooked shrimp!! Fortunately, we able to enjoy fresh and frozen shrimp throughout the year. This fried breaded shrimp recipe is simple and easy too cook,yet delicious and succulent!!

1 lb large headless and shell on shrimp (16/20 or 21/25 size),shelled and deveined
1 tbsp fine seasalt
1 tsp ground garlic powder
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1 cup panko(Japanese bread crumb)+1/4 cup sliced almond
1 egg +4 tbsp milk,beaten
enough oil for deep frying

Dipping Sauce:
2-3 tbsp Orange Marmalade sauce
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tsp hot sauce
1 tsp honey

2:Prepare 2 clean plates or container,one for flour and another for panko(bread crumb)+ almond.
3:Heat fryer or deep pot with oil at medium heat.Coat seasoning shrimp in flour,then dip into egg mixture before coated with panko and almond sliced. Repeat the same procedure until shrimp finish.
