Maine Shrimp Question

Unless you are planning on eating the shells and heads (which some people actually do), it seems putting a batter or dredge on them would be a waste, as that will get peeled away when you peel the shells off the fried shrimp.

Yeah sorry if I confused the issue. I want to eat the shells and the heads.

Tempura batter?

 

I had those once in China town, at some dinky basement joint.

 

Went with a local.

 

They brought the shrimp out, still alive, in a bag, for inspection.

 

LOVED eating Chinese like that.

 

Such a treat.

Don't bother......get an enameled cast iron Dutch oven and a spider and you are good to go.

 

About 5 years ago, I got a good counter top deep fryer for Christmas, and while it works well, it takes too much oil and is a PITA to clean and deal with when you are done. I hardly ever use it anymore, cause the Dutch oven and the spider is a WHOLE lot easier to deal with and does the job just as well if not better.

I used to have a cast iron enameled but I droped it and chipped the enamel pretty bad. Need to get a new one.

Take some scissors and cut off the antenae and the point at the front of the head before you fry them.

 

I also use Le Creuset but any cast iron is good for frying. Have a smaller 1.5 qt that gets used a lot for small batch frying since you need hardly any oil.
