Cheap Date: Fried Shrimp Appetizer

If you are looking to impress your date will a cheap and easy appetizer, I’ve got just the right recipe for you! I am always tempted to order an appetizer or appetizer sampler at restaurants because a. they are usually fairly inexpensive and b. they always look so delicious. Luckily for you, and me, I’ve figured out a way to make a popular appetizer even easier and cheaper!

Ingredients:

  • shrimp
  • flour
  • egg
  • panko bread crumb
  • pepper
  • vegetable oil
  • seasoning of your choice

Take three bowls and put a bit of flour in one, an uncooked egg with the yoke broken in the second and panko bread crumbs mixed with seasoning and pepper in the third. As you are preparing the bowls put a skillet with about 1/4 inch layer of vegetable oil on a low setting. Take the shrimp and dip it in the flour first, then the egg and finally cover it in the breadcrumb mixture. Put the breaded shrimp back into the egg and then add more breadcrumbs for a thicker layer. Place each shrimp on the skillet after breading and continue the process with all of the individual shrimp. Flip the shrimp over once the bottom side is a golden brown.

Cheap and super easy appetizer in just about 10 minutes!

 

Personally, I enjoy ketchup with my fried shrimp but you can try any dipping sauce.  I’d recommend cocktail sauce.
