Another seafood delight is now coming your way. If you love to enjoy shrimp every now and then, then here is your chance to enjoy super crispy and delicious Japanese fried shrimp. Before we start with the recipe, let me tell you how to prepare the shrimp. Firstly, remove the shells from the shrimp and then make a small cut on top of the shrimp, just deep enough to remove the black vein from the shrimp. Once the shrimp are deveined, make 2-3 small cuts on the underside of the shrimp to avoid their curling after the cooking. Now that your shrimp are ready, you can bread them and fry them until crispy.
