I’ve been to Nola and been to morrows an neyows and so forth.even jakamoes and all shrimp had the tails on them. Kinda weird your saying this when I was just there. Rethink your memory.
i'm from NOLA & i just do not understand why anyone would leave the tails on fried shrimp! i've never eaten them with the tails on at any restaurant or any home. most people will make a po-boy with them, so then you have to go back & take the tails off after you cook them? who does that? and even if you're just eating them on a seafood platter, you have to find room on your plate to put a bunch of shrimp tails. why? other than that, good recipe. use Zatarain's fish fry.
Good shrimp, but I've made better.
I live on the coast of GA and have access to delicious Wild GA Shrimp. I have tried several fried shrimp recipes, and my family says this is the best ever. I do like to put the shrimp back into the refrigerator after it has been battered for about 30 minutes. It seems to fry better that way.
