      I was using small shrimp and thankfully the batter wasn't too thick. I shook off the excess batter. Just followed the exact recipe, and they turned out great. Making sure the oil was hot enough (but not too hot) and cooking in small batches helped. Also I cooked to a golden brown to make sure the shrimp got cooked. My niece worked at Red Lobster, and said they tasted identical. Thanks for the recipe, it's my go to for now on!

      Very good. All I had was frozen, cooked shrimp (which I hate), so I will update this the next time I make it with uncooked shrimp. I am an amateur when it comes to deep frying foods, so take my opinion for what it's worth (virtually nothing). lol. The batter is absolutely fantastic and I will be trying it with other foods (chicken, etc.) I tried cooking them one at a time on the first few, just to get the hang of cooking them, and I highly suggest butterflying the shrimp if possible. That way you get more surface area covered with the yummy batter! Thank you very much for the recipe!
