Fried Shrimp & Hashbrowns
This is Jimmy Babin's recipe for frying. For his products:

For the fried shrimp:

Egg/Milk wash:
1 egg
1 1/2 cups half-n-half
1 tbs lemon juice
1-2 tbs Gator Pickle juice (from the jar of pickles or okra)

Dry batter: Gator Wing Batter

Whisk the wet ingredients together until egg is well blended. Add several shrimp to the wet mixture and let sit for 2 or 3 minutes, while you let your grease heat up. Take out one at a time and dredge (with your dry hand) in Gator Wing Batter. Add each one to a frying basket. Fry at 350 degrees for about 2 1/2 minutes, until golden and floating.
Drain on paper towels.

Prepare frozen shredded hash brown potatoes according to package directions. Top with cheese and the fried shrimp. I also added some of our roasted veggie puree on top. You can use picante sauce or fresh salsa.
