Make Fried Foods Look More Sophisticated

Since I got a new cookware set, it makes me want to cook more! My husband was surprised and said I should have gotten one a long time ago. LOL. Still, I prefer cooking in minutes so those quick easy meals are what I prepare most of the time.

I always trust on breadings to help me realize that and I always got a stock of it in my pantry. Luckily for the first time, I was able to get a sample of House Autry Hushpuppy Mix with Onion. It has a different kick to it because of the onion but it turned out tasty! Even more, it really made it crunchier! This breading is not like the powdery type, not like flour. It is grainier in texture
For me, breading makes every fried food look a little bit sophisticated, just look at the shrimp tempura me and my daughter prepared! Who'd think it could be done in less than 30 minutes!?

With this recipe, I just added a cup of flour. I cleaned and deboned each shrimp leaving only the "tail". Dipped it in scrambled egg, then in the breading mix, dipped it again in egg and dipped it again in the breading mix. Lastly, I deep fried each quickly in hot oil.
