One of the famous shrimp recipe is shrimp scampi. And after that mostly people prefer fried shrimps. Shrimps fried in spices and other flavors really uplifts the flavor of the dish. Fried shrimps are mostly served as an appetizers or snacks. It’s like finger foods for parties or for game day.

In today’s post, I am sharing a super simple recipe called Spicy and Crunchy Fired Shrimps. This recipe is a complete delight to make. This recipe is served with an amazing sauce mayonnaise and other ingredients like Asian chili sauce and honey which makes a perfect balance of tangy, sweet and spicy flavors. I personally enjoy this recipe after shrimp Alfredo. Shrimp Alfredo is again a super easy recipe which can be served with pasta or linguine however, this is a crunchy recipe with all flavors and taste. Anyways to make this recipe a complete delight the key is keep the skin crunchy but from inside it should be moist and juicy.
