  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • Special equipment: Thick wooden pop sticks

Directions
For the shrimp:

Add all the shrimp ingredients to a food processor and pulse until well combined and smooth. Form the shrimp mixture into 7 equal sized 2-inch balls. Insert a wooden pop stick into the middle of each shrimp ball and form the ground shrimp into a shape similar to a hot dog. Place shrimp dogs on a cookie sheet and put in the refrigerator until well-chilled and firm, about 30 minutes.

For the corn batter:

Preheat deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.

While chilling shrimp dogs, prepare batter. In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup flour, egg, cornmeal, garlic powder, sugar, baking powder and buttermilk.

Place the remaining 1 cup of flour onto a large plate. *Dredge chilled shrimp dogs into flour then dip into the batter and fry in the hot oil for 3 minutes or until dark and golden brown. Remove to a paper towel lined sheet tray to drain.

Serve with dipping sauce.

*Cook's Note: Hold corn dog by the stick for the first minute of frying, until batter becomes solid, then fry for another 2 minutes.

Dipping sauce:

In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, horseradish, and paprika. Place in refrigerator until ready to serve corn dogs.
