Serves 4


1/2 lb of raw shrimp, tails removed (31/40 count)

Salt and pepper

1/4 cup of oil

Thai dipping sauce, to serve


Step 1: In a large bowl mix together the flour, water and sugar. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2: In a shallow dish, place the Panko breadcrumbs.

Step 3: In a large frying over medium-high heat, add the oil and let it heat.

Step 4: Meanwhile, add your raw shrimp to the flour mixture and coat. Handling one piece at a time (making sure the shrimp isn't dripping wet), coat each shrimp piece in the breadcrumbs. Set aside until use. Do this with the remaining shrimp.

Step 5: Add the shrimp to the hot oil, making sure you don't over crowd the shrimp, fry on each side for 2-3 minutes until golden in colour. Drain on paper towel and serve with Thai dipping sauce. ENJOY!
