Panko Shrimp

Well, this is one of my favorite recipes in the world!  You can make Panko Shrimp or use this same recipe and make Panko Chicken.  It is very uncharacteristic of me not to measure when I cook, but this is one recipe that is hard to measure.  I usually just scoop a few spoonfuls of flour into a pan and a few spoonfuls of Panko crumbs in a pan.  If I need more, I just pour more.  My aunt Jolene and I made these in Houston. Enjoy!!

Peel and devein shrimp.  Butterfly the shrimp and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Prepare separate bowls of flour, egg, and Panko crumbs.  Dip shrimp into flour.
Then beaten eggs.

Finally dip shrimp into Panko crumbs.

Heat oil and butter in a large saute pan over medium heat.  Add shrimp and cook 2 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned.

Serve shrimp warm with cocktail or tarter sauce.
