Seafood is done when it is golden brown. Remove from the oil immediately and drain the fish or shellfish on paper towels. Be careful not to overcook or the food will dry out. A minute can make a difference. It’s like that steak on the grill — give it just a few more seconds and it’s overdone.
Peel shrimp, leaving last section of shell on tail. Combine egg, salt, pepper, paprika and Tabasco in medium bowl.
Combine flour and crumbs in medium shallow dish. Dip each shrimp in egg mixture, then in flour mixture. Fry in deep fat, 350 F, until golden brown, about 6 to 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serves 3 to 4.
