Sriracha Shrimp

The amount of shrimp, butter, and sriracha will depend on how many you'll be feeding, and how hot you like your sauce. The butter will help to temper the hot sauce and when it melts during tossing, creates a thick sauce with the sriracha sauce.

Ingredients

  • Head on shrimp
  • Whole butter in pats
  • Sriracha sauce

Instructions

  1. Clean whole shrimp and pat dry removing excess water.
  2. Preheat a deep fat fryer to 375 degrees F. Cook the shrimp until golden brown, crispy, and cooked through, taking care not to overcook them.
  3. While they are cooking, place butter and sriracha in a large mixing bowl. When the shrimp are done, drain, and add the hot shrimp to the mixing bowl. Toss until the butter is melted and creates a sauce with the sriracha, and the sauce completely coats the shrimp.
  4. Serve while still warm.

Notes

Don't overcook the shrimp or they will end up tough.
