Nana Stuffie's Fried Shrimp
Recipe courtesy of Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking
Pat shrimp dry with paper towels. Whisk together the egg and milk and add shrimp to mixture. Stur together the flour, Creole seasoning, salt, and peppers in a wide bowl. Dunk the shrimp from the milk mixture in the flour mixture, then move to a work rack set over a plat. Let sit for a moment, then return the shrimp to the flour mixture a second time; shake off excess flour.
Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat to 375ºF. Fry shrimp in small batches until golden brown, 3-4 minutes per batch. Repeat, returning oil to temperature between batches. Serve hot.
