How to Make Beer Batter Shrimp Fritters
- Put the chopped shrimp in a container and sprinkle some Cajun seasoning on them - toss them well to get them all coated. Cover and refrigerate until ready to add to batter.
- After four hours mix in the shrimp, green onions, parsley and garlic.
*Tip: To test the batter for seasoning, mix up everything without the shrimp and just drop a little of the batter mixture into the hot oil. Taste and adjust if needed. If it's too spicy, add about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of both flour and beer to tame the heat, then take about 1/4 to 1/2 of the batter out and mix the shrimp into the remaining batter. Use reserved batter for something else like fish or onion rings.
