Can I batter and fry pre-boiled shrimp?

See subject line. Thanks.

Frankly, I don't see why not. The shrimp may turn out a little chewy but it would depend on how big they are to begin with. I'd do it though.

just make sure your oil is hot (around 350-360 degrees F) so you can flash fry the shrimp rather than cook it. Make sure your shrimp is about room temp. and don't over batter the shrimp
