Shelly's Crunchy Shrimp

Well this was my first time ever having shrimp at home... I just recently started ordering it more and more at restaurants, mostly in pasta, but have always loved it breaded as well. This was probably one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. No joke. Shelly, this was AMAZING! (Huge thanks to Shelly @ LovesToNom!) She linked me to this recipe at work this afternoon and I ran out to the grocery store at lunch to get some panko bread crumbs so that I could make it for dinner tonight :)

Serves 2.

Ingredients

* Appx 2 dozen medium size shrimp that come in the frozen bag (I bought a big bag of tails off @ Sam's Club)
* 3 tbsp flour
* 3 tsp cayenne pepper (or more if you like spicy!)
* 2 tsp black pepper
* 3 tsp garlic salt
* 2 eggs
* Panko bread crumbs
* Vegetable oil

Directions

1. Set out 2 paper plates and 1 small bowl. On the first plate mix the flour, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and garlic salt. In the bowl, beat 2 eggs. On the second plate, dump some Panko bread crumbs.
2. Heat up some vegetable oil in a large skillet (not olive oil). Pour just enough oil so it thinly covers the entire bottom of the pan.
3. Take a shrimp, dunk it in the flour mixture, then the egg, then the panko. Carefully put it in the skillet. Repeat as necessary.
4. Fry each side about 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
5. Shelly says you don't need dipping sauce, but I picked up some of this lemon dill sauce and it was so delicious on the shrimp!
