Morrison's cafeteria fried shrimp

2 pounds medium to large shrimp (about 3 dozen), cleaned and tails left on

Vegetable oil for deep frying


2 tablespoons baking powder

1 1/4 teaspoons salt

3 teaspoons paprika

3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 egg, slightly beaten

3 cups cold water

Dredging mixture:

1 cup flour, sifted

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon white pepper

Makes 6 servings.

Blot shrimp dry with paper towels and set aside. Heat several inches of oil to 340 degrees in a deep, heavy pot or deep fryer.

Meanwhile, whisk the baking powder, salt and paprika into the flour. Whisk in the egg and water, blending well. Combine the dredging mixture in a shallow dish.

Hold shrimp by the tail, dredge, dip in batter and slip into hot oil. Fry a few at a time just until batter is golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
