2 tablespoons coarse ground black pepper

3 tablespoons salt

2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails left on

Directions

  1. Preheat oil to 375 degrees F.

In a separate shallow baking dish, whisk together flour, cornmeal, pepper and salt. Make sure your shrimp are dry and dredge in the dry mixture first, then wet mixture and finally the dry mixture again. Shake off excess between each dredging.
