Fried Shrimp

This couldn’t be more easy to make. Very few ingredients and perfect on a warm summer day with a side of beer or cold soda. This is similar to the shrimp you get at Asian buffets. You can buy this kind of shrimp at your local Asian market. Just look for the package in below.


  • White whole shrimp
  • Creole seasoning
  • Flour
  • Sunflower/ coconut oil for frying ( you can use regular vegetable oil instead)
  • Lemon


  1. Rinse shrimp with cold water make sure your shrimp is fully thawed. Pat dry with paper towel.
  2. Season each side of shrimp with creole seasoning.
  3. Dust each side of shrimp with flour. I just tossed them in a bowl with flour.
  4. In a cast iron or deep skillet ( you can always use a deep fryer) heat oil. Fry shrimp couple min on each side . No more than 4 min total.
  5. Please on to a paper towel to get some of the oil out.
  6. Serve with lemon squeezed over the top.

AboutLily’s Cooking & Home

My story, I met the love of my life when I was 16 and two years later we were married. When we first got married I was not much of a cook, I would buy so many cook books and try recipes over and over again until it would turn out. I never gave up and my husband can tell you I had my share of bad cooking. The more I practiced the better I got. Now we are going on 10 years of happily married. I love to cook and create my own recipe also became a baker, I have also taken interest in doing home design and decor. In my blog I would love to share with you the recipes I create, recipes I find and love to share also tips for home decor and ideas.
