2lbs. raw shrimp- peeled and de-veined
2cups plain breadcrumbs
3/4tsp. garlic powder
1/2tsp. onion powder
1tsp. dried tarragon- crushed
oil for frying
Beat the egg in a medium bowl.
Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels and add them to the egg. Toss.
In a large bowl, Whisk together the breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder and tarragon.
Remove all the shrimp from the egg bowl, allowing excess to drip.
Toss the shrimp in the breadcrumb mixture. let stand while heating the oil.
Heat the oil to a medium-high temperature. (breadcrumbs brown very quickly and have to be cooked at a slightly lower temp.)
Shake excess breadcrumbs from the shrimp and fry several at a time for about 2 minutes per batch.
Or until golden brown and cooked through.
Serve with your favorite sauce.
