This Crispy Fried Shrimp Platter recipe has been a family favorite for years. It's perfect for gatherings or just a simple dinner at home. The crispy coating on the shrimp is what sets this dish apart from others.

I remember my grandmother making this dish for special occasions, and it was always a hit. The aroma of the frying shrimp would fill the house, and everyone would gather around the table, eager to dig in.

  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Lemon wedges, for serving
  • Tartar sauce, for dipping


  1. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, salt, black pepper, paprika, and garlic powder.
  2. In another shallow dish, beat the eggs.
  3. Place the panko breadcrumbs in a third shallow dish.
  4. Dredge each shrimp in the flour mixture, then dip into the beaten eggs, and finally coat with the panko breadcrumbs.
  5. Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a deep skillet or heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F.
  6. Fry the shrimp in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan, for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the fried shrimp to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  8. Serve the Crispy Fried Shrimp Platter with lemon wedges and tartar sauce for dipping.
