Italian Spicy Breaded Shrimp

Italian Spicy Breaded Shrimp

It is a classic appetizer from the Adriatic coast.It is crispy with the flavor of lemon,almond and cinnamon. Recipe calls for Ameretto or Italian almond liquor, I also used a little of almond flour and panko bread crumbs to the breading flour which adds a crunchy nutty flavor to the shrimp.

Recipe source: Betty Crocker's Italian cooking- recipes by Antonio Cecconi

Peel shrimp,leaving tails on,take off the vein. Wash and pat dry.
Beat egg till light and fluffy and add amaretto,lemon juice and garlic.Into this add shrimp and mix till well coated. Cover and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan ( 325 degree F). Mix flour, almond flour, panko bread crumbs,salt,red pepper and cinnamon.Coat each shrimp with this flour mixture. Deep fry for three minutes or until golden brown and crispy on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
