  • 1 lb. large shrimp, U 16-20 size
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2-tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbs. parsley, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pinch saffron
  • 1/4-tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2-tsp. Gray salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • pinch of freshly-ground black pepper


Step 1

Peel and de-vein the shrimp. Rinse under cold water and pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. Beat the eggs with 3 tablespoons of water and the olive oil. Add the parsley, garlic saffron, baking soda and salt. Stir in the flour to make a smooth batter and allow to rest for 1 hour, unrefrigerated.

Step 2

In a deep pan heat olive oil to 350 degrees F. Dip shrimp into batter, allowing any excess to drip off. Fry until golden brown and slightly puffed.
