Fried Butterfly Shrimp in White Zinfandel


Fried butterfly shrimp is one of my family favorite snack.The best way to enjoy butterfly shrimp is when the shrimp was fried hot from fryer to table.The butterfly shrimp must be crisp and juicy.I used some leftover white zinfandel to infused in the shrimp for extra zest flavor!!





Ingredients:
15 extra-large shrimp,peeled,cleaned and butterfly(deviened)
`

Seasoning:
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp seasalt
1 tsp sugar
3-4 tbsp white zinfandel
1 egg


Coating:
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 panko(plain bread crumb)

Tartar sauce on side




Method:

1:To prepare your shrimp, first make sure that they have been peeled. This includes ensuring that their head and legs have been removed, but not the tail. You should also remove the veins in the shrimp.Once you have prepped your shrimp, take your paring knife or your kitchen shears and place them at the top of the shrimp, at the head region. Insert the blade into the shrimp, about ¾ of the way through (careful not to go all the way through. You will want to carefully cut down the center of the shrimp’s back to the tail. Once you have done this, use your fingers to open up the flesh of the shrimp until the meat is flat. At this time removing the central vein is easier than if you try to do it before opening up the shrimp. All you have to do now is thoroughly wash the shrimp in cold water (being careful to not let the shrimp meat collapse or fall apart.

2:Prepare all the seasoning in a large bowl,mix well.Toss shrimp in the seasoning ,marinated for 1 hour or longer.

3:Prepare fryer with oil at medium high heat for 350 F.Hold shrimp tail and coated with flour,then dip again in the marinate before coat again in bread crumb,lightly press the bread crumb on the shrimp,shake well then place in the hot oil.

4:Fry breaded shrimp until golden brown.Removed fried shrimp from hot oil on the paper towel to absorb the excess oil.Serve warm with tartar sauce or your favorite.
