• 250 grams of self-rising flour.
  • Kosher salt.
  • 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning.
  • ½ tsp black pepper.
  • Buttermilk; I used 4 cups.
  • To fry, I used vegetable oil.
  • 1 kg. medium shrimp; peeled.


  1. Mix flour, 1 tablespoon salt, Old Bay seasoning and black pepper in a shallow pan.
  2. Put the buttermilk in a separate bowl on the small side. Put the oil in a medium-sized cast iron casserole or pan and heat it over medium-high heat until it reaches 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Meanwhile, wipe the shrimp and slide them into the flour mixture the first time, then coat them with buttermilk and pour them into the flour mixture the second time.
  4. After each coat, shake the shrimp quickly to remove the flour or dough.
  5. Fry the shrimp in batches until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes). The shrimp must be transferred to a tray that has been lined with paper towels using a slit spoon.
  6. Add more salt, depending on your preference. Like fried shrimp, you can see that you need to increase the heat to keep the oil at a constant temperature between 350 and 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  7. While you cook the remaining lots, keep the fried shrimp warm in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit
