Crispy Shrimp Recipe

Here's my version of the recipe:

1 pound medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and butterflied
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
1/4c milk
vegetable oil, for frying

2 cloves garlic, finely minced
2T extra virgin olive oil
1/4c white wine (optional)
1/2c fire roasted tomatoes (you can find these in a can!)
1/2t dried oregano (or italian herbs)
1/4c freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/4c half and half (or cream)
1 lemon, halved
salt and pepper
1 bunch green onions, sliced

Prepare the sauce by heating olive oil in a large skillet on med heat. Add garlic and sautee for 1 minute. Add white wine, oregano and tomatoes. Stir and simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir in parmesan cheese and cream, simmer on LOW for few minutes longer while you fry the shrimp. Just before serving, whisk in the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

To butterfly shrimp, run a sharp paring knife along the outer curve of the shrimp, cutting 2/3 of the way through the shrimp.
Coat shrimp in a mixture of egg and milk, then toss in panko breadcrumbs. Heat 1/4" of oil in a large frying pan on med-high. Toss in shrimp and cook until crispy- 3-5 minutes, turning once. Remove shrimp to a paper towel lined plate before serving.

To serve, put a few generous spoonfuls of the sauce on a plate. Add shrimp and sprinkle sliced green onion on the top. Serve immediately with more slices of lemon on the side.
Serves 4.

Alternatively, you can use a mixture of 2 parts AP flour to 1 part cornstarch to coat your shrimp before frying. Dip shrimp in egg mixture (as directed above) then into flour/cornstarch mixture (instead of panko) and fry. This will make a light, crispy coating on the shrimp as well.

Peel, devein, and butterfly your shrimp. I prefer the 21-30 ct. size or maybe the next smaller even. Soak them in egg for a few minutes.

Toss the shrimp in rice flour, and flash fry (20 sec.) in a deep fryer.

Remove from oil, and saute in nonstick pan over med-high with some oil or butter, and parmesean cheese for 2-3 minutes. Finish with green onions cut on a bias, more parm, lemon, and the sauce of your choice. I belive the sauce is basically broiled tomatoes pureed with garlic, onions, herbs, and olive oil. Enjoy!!

ISO recipe: Crispy Shrimp Napoli Has anybody had this at the chain restaurant called Bravo? Crispy Shrimp Napoli Shrimp fried to a golden crisp with green onions and our savory lemon butter, charred tomato Napoli sauce [IMG]http://s3-media1.ak.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/X0nYtYGJKELNLY5xdk432g/l.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://s3.amazonaws.com/foodspotting-ec2/reviews/322133/thumb_600.jpg?1296237661?1323206250[/IMG] It's so friggin good and I can't find a copycat recipe anywhere. I normally hate chain restaurants, but this place is generally pretty nice....when they aren't overcooking my pork chops. Has anybody who is an experienced cook had this and able to help me make it? 3 stars 1 reviews
