Ingredients

  • 2 lb medium raw shrimp, peeled, deveined tails removed
  • 2½ cup self-rising flour
  • ½ cup plain yellow cornmeal
  • 3½ tsp seafood seasoning, divided [i.e. Seafood Magic, Old Bay, Cajun-Creole]
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 2 large eggs,beaten
  • 1½ cup whole buttermilk
  • oil for frying

Directions

  • Season the shrimp with ½ tsp seafood seasoning and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the self-rising flour, cornmeal, 3 tsp seafood seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, and ground cumin.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 large eggs and 1½ cups whole buttermilk.
  • Toss the seasoned shrimp with ⅓ cup of the seasoned flour-cornmeal breading.
  • Spread out into a single layer so they wont clump.
  • Dip each piece in the buttermilk-egg wash.
  • Toss in the seasoned flour-cornmeal breading shaking off any excess.
  • Heat 4 inches of oil in a dutch oven or heavy bottomed saucepan to 350°F. Do not overfill the pot.
  • Fry the shrimp in batches for 2-3 minutes [depending on the size of the shrimp] until golden and crispy. Adjust the heat periodically to maintain the temperature of the oil while frying.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the crispy golden shrimp to a paper towel lined pan to drain.
  • Repeat until all of the shrimp is fried. Sprinkle with additional seasoning after frying, if desired. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce.
