Almond ShrimpPosted: October 9, 2010
From September 2, 2004: My grandmother gave me the idea for these shrimp. Almond crusted shrimp is one of her favorite dishes at an Italian restaurant in Houston, Texas. Well, that sounded easy enough to attempt at home, so I did. I served the almond shrimp with a Thai sweet chile sauce.
For the almond shrimp: Dust the peeled and deveined shrimp in cornstarch, making sure to shake off the excess cornstarch. Next, put the shrimp in an egg mixture (1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon of water) and then dredge in finely ground almonds (ground in a food processor). Pan fry in olive oil over medium heat until golden.
