Shrimp Fry

When we went for monthly grocery shopping to COSTCO these jumbo shrimps caught our eyes. We were having a dilemma between the shrimp and King crab..I have not cooked crab till now and had tasted it only once till now. As it was very expensive, did not want to take any risk and settled with the shrimp. Normally we make gravy or thokku with the shrimp but this jumbo needs to FRIED !!! Anything that to be fried will be handed over to MK.It tasted so good and everyone loved it.. Worth trying !!!!

Bigger the shrimp easier it would be to de-vein it. Cleaning is a very important task when we plan to cook shrimp. To de-vein, use a small, sharp knife and make a small slit on the back of the shrimp and pull out the black vein like stuff. Clean well in cold water for at least 5 times. One more thing, my MIL always says not to give shrimp to kids below 5. It might cause some digestion problems in them.
