Ingredients
  • Vegetable or peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk, eyeball it
  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, deveined
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal or bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons seafood seasoning a couple of palm fulls (recommended: Old Bay)
  • 4 soft club rolls or sub rolls, split
  • 1 beefsteak tomato, thinly sliced
  • 8 pieces Bibb or butter lettuce
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 cup spicy, grainy mustard
  • Few drops hot sauce
Directions

Preheat 1-inch of oil in a deep skillet over medium to medium-high heat.

Beat egg and milk together. Pull tails off shrimp. Salt shrimp then soak in milk batter. Before you begin breading the shrimp, cover a plate with plastic wrap for easy clean up then mix together the flour, cornmeal or bread crumbs and seafood seasoning on the plate. Using tongs, remove a few shrimp at a time and coat in breading. Add breaded shrimp to the hot oil and fry them 5 to 6 minutes or until firm and deeply golden all over.

Pile lettuce and tomato on rolls and top with shrimp, douse the shrimp with a little lemon juice. Mix relish, mustard and hot sauce and dot the roll tops with spoonfuls of the sauce before setting into place.
