While at Kroger yesterday I purchased some more of the huge Freshwater Shrimp.I rinsed them off in cold water and removed the shells, they were already deveined, and put them in a Hefty Zip Bag in the fridge. To prepare these I’m using Zatarain’s Shrimp Fri – Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix.
Poured about 1 inch of olive oil into large skillet. Heat oil to 350°F on medium heat. Take the peeled shrimp, mix 1/2 6cup Zatarain’s Seasoned Shrimp Fri with 1/2 cup water in medium bowl. Pour additional 1/2 cup Shrimp Fri onto plate or into plastic bag. Dip shrimp in the batter. Shake off excess. Roll or shake shrimp in remaining 1/2 cup Shrimp Fri until evenly coated. Discard any remaining batter in bowl or Shrimp Fri on plate or in plastic bag. Fry the shrimp, a few pieces at a time, in hot oil until light golden brown. Drain on paper towels and served. The Zatarain’s Shrimp Fri is an excellent breading for Shrimp! Nice light coating with great flavor.
To go with the Shrimp I prepared a box of Kraft – Velveeta Rotini and Cheese, Whole Grain. I don’t use a lot of Mac and Cheese due to the calories and carbs but the Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese isn’t too bad, plus every now and then doesn’t hurt. To prepare it; Boil 6 cups water. Stir in shell pasta. Cook 8-10 min., Stirring occasionally. Drain pasta, don’t rinse. Return it to pan. Add cheese sauce; stir. And you have some creamy and cheesy Mac and Cheese! It’s just a flat out Pasta and Cheese Comfort Food Heaven! Excellent tasting Rotini Pasta and with the Cheese, perfect. Shrimp and Pasta is a perfect pairing! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher's Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
