Italian Fried Shrimp Turned Firecracker Shrimp Recipe

I made 24 Italian seasoned fried shrimp and am very lucky I had any left for the hot sauce version. These are great naked. But making them around the 4th of July, they were a perfect treat for the holiday. I have seen them so many places that have them on the menu and thought why not, we love wings lets try these out...Well my husband ate them as fast as they could come out of the frying pan but I managed to get a few with hot sauce.
The shrimp is a crispy coating on the outside and the hot spicy taste of this sauce makes them famous for their name firecracker hot shrimp.

Just like eating popcorn chicken~ can't get enough!!



24 large shrimp cleaned, no tails on and water squeezed out if frozen
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
Beat egg and milk together add shrimp to mixture.
In a large plastic bag add:
1 cup flour
3 tablespoon corn starch
1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and garlic powder.
In a large frypan heat about 2 cups of oil on medium high heat till hot.
Add a few shrimp at a time and fry till brown.
Sauce:
1/2 cup of favorite hot sauce, I use Franks hot sauce.
4 tablespoon melted butter
Mix together pour over shrimp. Add blue cheese or ranch dressing on the side.
