Buffalo Shrimp Recipe Ingredients


1 cup mayonnaise 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

1⁄2 cup sour cream (regular, low-fat, or fat-free) 1⁄4 cup hot sauce (such as

1⁄3 cup crumbled blue cheese (such as Danish Blue or Gorgonzola; about 2 ounces)
Texas Pete or Tiger Sauce, not salsa)

8 cups peanut oil or vegetable oil

Juice of 1 lemon 2 teaspoons onion salt 1 pound medium shrimp (35 to 40 per pound), peeled, 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder leaving the final segment of the tail shell intact, and

1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground deveinedblack pepper, or more to taste 2 cups all-purpose flour

Buffalo Shrimp Recipe Cooking process

1.To prepare the blue cheese dip, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, blue cheese, lemon juice, onion salt, garlic powder, and pepper in a small bowl and mix until well combined. ( The dip can be prepared up to 24 hours in advance and kept covered in the refrigerator.)

2.To prepare the shrimp, combine the melted butter and hot sauce in a large mixing bowl and set aside.

3.Pour the oil into a large saucepan at least 4 inches deep and 10 inches in diameter; the oil should be 11⁄2 inches deep but reach no more than halfway up the sides of the pan. Alternatively, fill an electric deep fryer with oil according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you’re using a pan, clip a deep-frying thermometer to the inside and place the pan over medium heat. Heat the oil to 375°F. Adjust the heat to maintain that temperature while you prepare the shrimp. If you’re using an electric deep fryer, set the temperature control to 375°F.

4.Dredge the shrimp in the flour and shake off the excess. Fry the shrimp, about 10 at a time, for 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Remove the shrimp from the pan with a slotted spoon or strainer, and place on paper towels to drain.

5.Toss the hot shrimp in the butter/hot sauce glaze, coating them completely. Serve warm with the blue cheese dipping sauce.Buffalo Shrimp Recipe
