Fried Shrimp

Another thing I thought I’d never have again (not that I ever crave it, but still): fried shrimp.

Peppery Pan-Fried Shrimp


Category: Fried Shrimp

Serves/Makes: 6    |   Difficulty Level: 2    |   Ready In: < 30 minutes


1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound medium shrimp peeled and deveined
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 lemon juiced


On a large plate or shallow bowl, combine flour, black pepper, salt and cayenne pepper. Add shrimp and toss gently to coat.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and cook until golden and curled, about 3 minutes per side. Sprinkle with lemon juice to serve.

Homemade cocktail sauce

1/2 cup ketchup (find the best one you can, with the fewest ingredients)
4 tablespoons raw horseradish, grated (or 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish)
1 teaspoon lemon zest, finely minced
several dashes of Tabasco, depending on your energy that day
1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and cracked black pepper

Mix all the ingredients together. Allow the cocktail sauce to marinate for a bit (at least a couple of hours), coaxing the flavors to mingle together.
