ChefTips's picture
  U 15 (extra large) shrimp 10
  Garlic 10 Clove (50 gm)
  Flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Paprika 2 Tablespoon
  Cayenne pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  White wine 1⁄8 Cup (2 tbs)
  Butter 2 Tablespoon

To begin, rinse and thaw your large shrimp in cool running water. Lightly pat dry. In a wide tupperware dish, place the flour, paprika and cayenne pepper. Mix lightly with your hands and coat each piece of shrimp on both sides.
Heat saute pan over high heat.

Add clarified butter and garlic. Stir for 1 minute, then add all of the shrimp, which has been coated in the flour mixture. Saute 3 minutes on each side.

After 3 minutes on the second side, add the 1/8 cup of white wine and 2 tablespoons butter. Saute, turning shrimp occasionally, until it reaches a caramel brown color.

Remove shrimp immediately and serve with two mounds of sticky steamed calrose rice and a lemon wedge, spooning extra garlic butter sauce over the rice and shrimp. Add extra salt and cayenne pepper to taste if desired.

I am an inexperienced cook. The recipe calls for shell-on shrimp, deveined. Batter is then prepared and shrimp coated. It seems to me the shells should have been peeled off prior to the battering, or am I in error?

The shell of the shrimp is often kept on to retain flavor and tenderness during cooking, and is removed by the diner before eating. You may be surprised to learn that in many Asian deep fried shrimp dishes, the whole shrimp is consumed--shell and all!

This is true in many countries (Asian and European & some Americans) consume the shells of light shelled shrimp/prawn. Of course had shelled types must be peeled prior to eating. Some shrimp just like soft shell crabs are eaten shell and all!
