Killer Buttermilk Shrimp

Monday, February 28, 2011

Hey Hey Hey!! Heres a simple recipe for making that fried shrimp everyone will be coming back to your house for. Its something about using whole wheat flour for dredging that makes it come out crispier and actually even more tasty! We also use a lil powdered sugar. WHAT??? Yes, it also adds more flavor and crisp so dont freak out. You'll thank us later. Oh and definitely try out the Colorful Asian Slaw too. Its so yum. Dress it with Newmans Sesame and Ginger and you're good to go. Enjoy!
