Baked Batter “Fried” Shrimp with Garlic Dipping Sauce – If you are a fan of Red Lobster’s Batter Fried Shrimp, then you are going to LOVE this healthier, homemade version in which the shrimp are baked instead of fried and they taste amazing!
Well HELLO there! Happy FAT Tuesday, you guys!
I WISH I was in N’Awlins right about now, sporting multi-colored beads and sippin’ on some delicious and smoky bourbon. Wouldn’t that be nice?!
Instead, I have Bourbon Balls (btw, they’re SO GOOD!) to keep me occupied while staring at a stash of beads that I got at Mardi Gras many moons ago.
Don’t worry, I didn’t flash a thing(s) to get them beads. But I did knock out the three girls in front of me, the ones that were flashing their “twins”, and I practically stole the beads that were meant for them…
I just read what I wrote right above and I sound like a bully.
But I needed a souvenir and I wasn’t willing to “work” for it, know whaddamean?
Also? In order to heal my New Awlins nostalgia woes, I made us shrimp. Naturally.
Also, also?? This was somewhat of an excuse to use up a pound of shrimp. I always buy too much – I make Lemon Shrimp Spinach Spaghetti more often than I care to admit – but a little at-home-Red-Lobster seriously hit the spot.
These shrimp, coated in spicy batter with panko crumbs, become insanely delicious and super crunchy, you’ll want to make a meal out of ’em. Dip ’em in Garlic Sauce and you’ll want to marry ’em!
Oh wait… you might be one of those people who think they don’t like shrimp. (!!!!) I’m here to tell you that once you make THIS, you won’t want to stop eating it.
Now let’s carry on.
