I know most would assume Southern fried catfish or maybe even perch or hush puppies should be my favorite thing that is served at a family fish fry, but nope, it is classic fried shrimp my friends. Those little morsels of seasoned and crunchy deliciousness are beyond sensational, and I can’t get enough.

This recipe is quite simple and includes a cornmeal flour batter that you can make a huge batch of and store away for your future fish fry needs. The flavors come together perfectly with a bit of a spicy kick.
