Crispy Fried Shrimps with Spicy Cocktail Sauce

Crispy Fried ShrimpsGenerally, I make shrimps with fried rice keeping it moist, juicy and flavored with an aromatic marinade. But this time, I decided to make a starter or a tea time snack made from fresh shrimps. This recipe is very easy to make and tastes great. You can even keep the marinated and coated shrimps in the refrigerator and can fry later whenever your guests arrive at the doorstep. It is also ideal for cocktail parties. You can also make this recipe with squids or with fresh water salmon. The cocktail sauce combined with this spicy treat gives amazing flavor to the taste buds making it almost irresistible. So let's make this quick fried shrimp starter recipe that is flavorful, crispy and totally scrumptious.
