Seasoned Fried Shrimp Appetizer

Shrimp, medium, raw, peeled & devained: 1 lb
Egg, large: 1 ea
Milk 2%: 1 cup
All Purpose Flour: 1 cup
Parmesan Cheese, grated: 1/8 cup
All Purpose Seasoning: 1 teaspoon
Frying Oil of your choice

1.  In a large frying pan, pour about 1/2 inch of oil and heat over medium-high heat.  

2.  While the oil is heating, whisk together the milk and the 1 egg in a bowl and set aside.  Mix together the flour, all purpose flour & seasoning with the Parmesan cheese and set aside.

3.  Place all the shrimp into the egg and milk mixture and coat each shrimp and then place in the flour mixture, making sure to cover the shrimp completely.

4.  At this point the oil should be ready to go.  Carefully place the shrimp in the frying pan.  Do not crowd the pan, the shrimp will need to be fried in 2 to 3 batches.  Allow to fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until a golden brown color is achieved.  When ready take shrimp out of the oil, shake off access oil and place on a plate and finish the next batch.

5.  Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.  Enjoy!!!
