Popeyes Popcorn Shrimp Recipe

Popeyes Popcorn Shrimp
Unfortunately, I don’t have a Popeye’s restaurant around here but I have always wanted to try their food, so I decided to prepare this copycat recipe for popcorn shrimp. This recipe is very easy to prepare. Raw shrimp is dipped in egg and then rolled in a seasoned flour mixture and fried. You should remove the tails from the shrimp before breading them that way they are easy to eat. I used a deep-fryer for this recipe but a deep skillet with an inch or two of oil will work great as well. Enjoy.
