  • 5 teaspoonfuls of Cajun spice*
  • 100 grams of cornmeal.
  • 100 grams of flour.

  1. In a bowl, mix milk, eggs, and buttermilk together. Stir it aggressively!
  2. In another bowl, pour the cornmeal and flour.
  3. Start to peel the shrimps, but leave the tail section. Using a knife, barley slice them halfway through their back.
  4. Wash the shrimp as thoroughly as possible. Spread out the shrimp on a plate.
  5. Sprinkle the shrimp in your mixture of Cajun spices, and dip in milk and egg mixture. Do this multiple times with one shrimp. It is ok for the spices to be in the milk bowl.

  7. You should be with done the shrimps! Head the oil in a frying pan, and fry for 3-5 minutes!
