This is the tastiest Crispy Fried Shrimp recipe. Plus it takes less than 20 minutes to prepare, i’m sure your going to love it!

Crispy Fried Shrimp

Made with rice crispies and coconut flakes then is deep fried in a little oil that crisps it up just right.  

It’s, Monday which means we have a long haul to the weekend. So I wanted to come up with a quick and delicious recipe for a weeknight. So I took a look in my freezer and found a large bag of shrimp and came up with this delicious recipe which has turned out to be one of our new favorite shrimp recipes of all time. 

These shrimp can be served as is or alongside just about any other dish. As well you can serve them with your favorite sauce, such as tartar sauce or cocktail sauce. Which would make these a great option to serve a crowd as an appetizer.

I also like to serve them with fresh lemon wedges as you can see in the recipes pictures. Once you try these shrimp, you will be hooked.

Notes: You can always substitute the rice krispies for panko breadcrumbs if you do not have them on hand. However the rice krispies are truly the better option.
