Joes' Crab Shack Popcorn Shrimp

Serve with your favorite tarter or sea food sauce. I also use roasted paprika. Again, matter of preference

1 lb Small Fresh Shrimp (cleaned and shelled)
4 Tbsp. Corn Starch
2 Eggs Beaten
1/4 C Water
1 C Cracker Meal
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Creole Seasoning
1 tsp Brown Sugar
1/3 C Plain Bread Crumbs
1/3 C Flour
1 1/2 tsp Tabasco Sauce
1/2 tsp. Paprika

Place shrimp in a bowl, add garlic powder, brown sugar and Tabasco Sauce and mix well. Marinate shrimp for 1/2 hour in refrigerator.

Beat egg and add water, blend well, set aside. Mix flour, cracker meal, bread crumbs paprika and Creole seasoning together and blend well.

Assemble for frying of shrimp, one bowl for corn starch, one bowl for egg wash, and one bowl for cracker mixture.

Heat oil for frying, use your favorite form of deep frying.

One piece at a time dust shrimp with corn starch, then place lightly in egg wash then roll in cracker crumb mixture. Fry until done. Shrimp will float to top when cooked through, remove when done and place on paper towels.

Serve with your favorite tarter or sea food sauce.
